Regardez Voir (Look & See)

Regardez Voir is a service for all ages that lets you stop for a chat and obtain some fascinating insights into artworks.
Whilst it may be simple enough merely to look at a piece of art, truly seeing it requires us to understand the meaning behind it. 
This service can be accessed every Tuesday from 12.30 pm to 2 pm, and on Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm. 
To "activate" the service, approach a member of staff wearing the "Regardez Voir" badge.
They will happily take a few minutes to help you see the artwork in a new light. 
This program was illustrated by the artist Mattia Denisse. A selection of her screen prints are displayed in the Villa Paloma's "Table des Matières".
