Statues, sculptures and artistic installations are scattered around the city’s public areas.
More than 220 monuments and works of art are installed throughout the territory of the City of Geneva.
The municipal administration is responsible for installing and maintaining them.
The main challenges facing the teams tasked with the upkeep of the monuments remains graffiti and vandalism. Both fragile and precious, it is important to clean the monuments without damaging them. This is where experience and know-how come into play, guaranteeing the longevity of these works of art.
The choice of new pieces is primarily made by the Municipal Fund for Contemporary Art (FMAC). The oldest pieces are part of our heritage. Some were given or bequeathed to the City of Geneva.
