90 000 Colorful Ball Art Installation In La Havre

Architects and designers at Claude Cormier + Associés Inc. from Canada used thousands of plastic balls to decorate Le Havre City Hall’s landscape paying a tribute to Claude Monet. The installation is called Pergola. It consists of 90 000 various tied up colorful plastic balls, which seem to resemble grapes hanging from their vines. A flowering plant  has a significant role in French impressionism through its recurrence in Monet’s paintings.

It is a wonderful initiative to honor one of the most famous French painter and founder of impressionist painting. What could be  a better place to set up an art installation paying tribute to Claude Monet than the beautiful town of Le Havre, where the forefather of impressionism spent his childhood?
