The pandemic has affected us all, and here we refer both to the medical crisis, but especially to the financial and economic one. Many businesses are now in a difficult situation. Among them, the cultural and creative sector is among the worst affected. Artists can barely make a living, as shows across Europe have been cancelled, festivals, conferences and exhibitions have been postponed, cinemas, theatres and museums have been closed, and film and television productions have been cut off.
If the funding allocated to the cultural sectors was small anyway, the recent crisis has exacerbated the problems faced by both public and private cultural institutions, especially independent artists. In addition, some artists had to postpone their concerts and shows with tickets already sold, and others cancelled their art exhibitions.
Art exhibition at Madame B with the support of LULU Romanian Association
In this rather difficult economic context, an NGO in Bucharest initiated a project meant to support local artists who no longer have a place to exhibit their works. At the same time, the project is meant to add beauty to the restaurants and cafes suitable for exhibiting paintings by local artists.
The projects intend to help both industries affected by the pandemic and the economic crisis: the Horeca sector and the local artists.
So starting with September 30, art lovers can admire a wonderful art exhibition at Madame B, one of the most popular cafes in Bucharest.
In this way, the artists have a place to exhibit their works, and the restaurant makes the restaurant more beautiful. In addition, all the paintings on display are available for sale at permissive prices. Of course, we are not talking about works that we could find in museums, but they are works of art in which artists have put a lot of soul and which could find their place in the homes of local art lovers.
With the support of the LULU Association, art lovers can now admire the permanent exhibition while enjoying the most delicious pancakes in Bucharest and enjoying the most delicious oriental tea.
,, First of all, the paintings are beautiful, they create a pleasant atmosphere and of course, they attract the attention of customers. We are happy to support the artists from Bucharest and to offer them the perfect setting to exhibit their works of art. At the same time, we are happy to support the Horeca sector, which is severely affected by the pandemic.
The project I initiated is a unique concept that offers you an experience detached as if from another world, a distinguished, elitist one, with people who love beauty. We want to promote the concept of culture at the level of the general mentality, and the cafes were the first we approached in the idea that through such projects we can attract a different kind of clientele in their locations. “said Steliana Gheorghe, representative of LULU Association for Valahia News.
The LULU Association will continue to support through projects of this type both local artists and the Horeca sector, in a win-win initiative.
