In South Tyrol’s towns publicly accessible art galleries can be found, which complete the museal offer.
The probably most famous city gallery of South Tyrol, that of Bolzano (Stadtgalerie Bozen), is located directly at the Dominican Square in the centre and is housed in a former Dominican Monastery. It is run by the Office of Historical-Artistic and Museum Services. Valuable works by Michael Pacher from the 15th century, such as a wooden statue and an altar wing, can be seen on the two floors, as well as the Carolingian choir screen from the St. Benedict Church in Malles in the Val Venosta valley. It dates back to the 9th century. Changing special exhibitions, e.g. "South Tyrol from 1850 - 1950", complete the offer.
But also in other South Tyrolean towns city galleries with artworks can be found, such as in Bressanone and Chiusa in the Valle Isarco valley. The Bressanone City Gallery (Stadtgalerie Brixen) is located under the historic arcades and shows several exhibitions of contemporary art. Local and international artists exhibit their projects, installations, sculptures and photographs here. The Chiusa City Gallery (Stadtgalerie Klausen), on the other hand, is located in the upper town of the enchanting medieval town and also shows changing special exhibitions.
And how to reach the city galleries? The Bolzano City Gallery is located at the Dominican Square, the one of Bressanone under the arcades and the Chiusa City Gallery in the upper town. All of them are within easy walking distance, parking spaces and bus stops are nearby. In Bolzano several bus lines stop directly next to the entrance.
The city galleries will remain closed until further notice.
