ART IN THE LANDSCAPE / PILGRIMAGE PLACE CROSS HILL AT STOD
13 July | Monday 10:00am – 10:00pm
A full-day programme held in the landscape of this pilgrimage place. 4:00pm meeting with a geologist Václav Cílek and other guests.
The Cross Hill is an ancient pilgrimage place situated in the middle of quiet woods – a landmark of the entire area of Stodsko. At its top, there used to be a major pilgrimage destination with a church on which a tower was built in 1931. From the tower lookout, it is possible to see the breath-taking panorama of the Šumava Mountain Range, as well as the Radyně Castle in the Pilsen Region. The tower was rebuilt and the church is under gradual reconstruction. This important place should not be missed in the complex of Baroque locations presented by the festival 9 Weeks of Baroque.
The all-day sculpture and painting open-air workshop will be launched at 10:00am. The main programme starts at 4:00pm with the main guests being RNDr. Václav Cílek, CSc., a geologist, writer, philosopher and science populariser, PhDr. Jaroslav Sojka, the curator of art collections of the Prague Castle, and Anton Robl (Germany, land art), a landscape architect. The programme will be concluded with a common fire and discussion about the Baroque sky, and observation of the night sky under the leadership of Lumír Honzík from the Pilsen Observatory.
