Actually it is more than just a museum: Kunst Meran - Merano Arte is a combined gallery, a museum, stages different events such as concerts, performances, literary meetings, seminars and workshops, and enthuses lovers of contemporary and vanguard arts. Topics such as architecture, arts, literature, music, photography and new media are treated. The offer is completed by the Café Kunsthaus. Kunst Merano - Merano Arte can be visited in the Cassa di Risparmio House, a beautifully restored building in the Arcades of Merano. On three floors and on 500 sqm, it provides plenty of space for exhibitions and an event hall for 70 people.
Opened in 2001, it is conducted by the association "artForum Gallery". Since 2004 it is member of the Italian Museums of Contemporary Arts, AMACI. On the upper floor, there is by the way an atelier apartment, providing space for artists from all over as "artists in residence". In this way upcoming artists are promoted and introduced into the national arts scene that is also an advantage for local artists. And how to reach Merano Arts? The Arcades are a pedestrian zone, around there are parking spaces (subject to charge). The busses stop at the nearby Piazza Teatro (Theatre Square) or in the Via delle Corse road.
