Tossa de Mar’s Department of Cultural Affairs has been generous to offer AIR.CAT both studio and exhibition spaces within the Municipal Art Museum, located within the ancient fortifications of the old city overlooking Codolar Cove. With a collection spanning from Roman artifacts recovered by archeological excavations to traditional landscapes to early modern art. It houses a collection of Marc Chagall paintings as well as pieces by Georges Kars and other Catalan modernist painters and sculptors. It is unique in that all of the content reflects art made entirely in Tossa de Mar. We have the special privilege to contribute and extend an aesthetic conversation persisting throughout the ages.

The Program’s final presentation/opening exhibit and symposium will be hosted on the ground-level changing gallery of the Museum. This will be a public event with guests from Barcelona, Girona and will include artist, critics, galerists and members of the specialized press. Residents will be asked to participate in a public panel discussion with a reception to follow, organized by the City of Tossa de Mar Department of Cultural Affairs.

 AIR.CAT has partnered with with the City of Tossa de Mar and the City Department of Cultural Affairs to offer each resident 24/7 access to the Museum’s uppermost floor where their studio work-space will be located. The space is air conditioned, has free unlimited WiFi and tables/chairs as well as a supply storage area..

The atelier space itself is spacious, has great natural light and views of rooftops of medieval buildings within the walled fortress-city.
