Taking a cultural tour of the MINATEC campus has probably never crossed your mind. Maybe now it will! The Grenoble-Alps University community created the “Campus des Arts” program in 2017 to promote the cultural interest of MINATEC and other sites. The program’s website lists some 40 works of art on Grenoble’s campuses and offers up discovery tours with downloadable guides. The 90-minute “Campus Ouest” walking tour starts at IUT, near the train station, and ends at LSPC on rue des Martyrs near the Presqu’île tramway stop. Along the way you will see five works of art in a variety of media, including paintings, mosaics, and sculptures. All were created by contemporary artists and commissioned by the University under the French government’s “1%” art acquisition grant program.
