On Tuesday, October 1, the opening of the 11th edition of the exhibition “When flowers flourish” proposed by the artists of the Monegasque National Committee of the International Association of Plastic Arts at UNESCO, at the Exotic Garden of Monaco. Until November 3, 16 sculptors exhibit their works, outdoor in the upper part of the Garden, and 19 photographers present their photographic works in the Greenhouse Louis Vatrican.

After the artists and guests admired the exhibited works, André J. Campana, Deputy Mayor, Delegate to the Exotic Garden, and Marylaure Pastorelli, Secretary-General of the International Association of Visual Arts at UNESCO, invited all guests to attend the awards ceremony.

As a reminder, as part of this exhibition, a competition is organized to distinguish the work of an artist-sculptor and that of an artist-photographer. Serge Dos Santos won a double award this year: the Mayor’s Award for the sculpture category and by the artist Matéo Mornar.

For photography, the Exotic Garden Director’s Award was awarded to Rita Saitta for the second year in a row. A second and a third prize were also awarded on behalf of the Sovereign Prince by Gaëtan Luci, photographer of the Prince’s Palace and jury member of the competition, respectively to Elke Daemmrich and Christine Cotinaud.

The exhibition is open to the public upon presentation of the entrance ticket to the Exotic Garden – the opportunity to enjoy an artistic walk in an exceptional site bringing together the most beautiful specimens of succulents and a unique panorama of the Principality.
