Just around the corner

 

If you are in Madrid these days, you are in luck. On the occasion of the celebration of International Museum Day 2021, a score of life-size replicas of the paintings of the Prado Museum are 'just around the corner'. Art in spaces, buildings and streets of Madrid.

The masterpieces are in everyday places as surprising as the Mercado de La Paz, the Gran Vía, Mercamadrid, Plaza de Castilla, the Royal Botanical Garden, the Retiro Park, Ifema, the National Library or the Municipal Printing House. Stroll through the streets, find them and upload your photos to the networks with the hashtag #VuelvealPrado.
An installation that amazes visitors and locals, who will be able to enjoy Velázquez, El Greco, Tiziano, Sorolla, Ribera, Rubens, Durero, Goya, Fortuny, Fray Angelico, Rafael, Zurbarán, Patinir and Rembrandt in the streets until next Sunday, June 6.

A great idea of El Prado, art in the street! Thanks to the collaboration of Iberia, Telefónica, the City of Madrid and the Prado Museum, the city is transformed into an art gallery.
All the paintings include a QR code to access a microsite designed specifically for the occasion with the location of all the reproductions of the selected paintings and the possibility of accessing the Digital Door of the museum through any mobile device.
