Rediscovering Isidore Odorico: The Mosaic Master of Angers

Known and recognized for his colorful mosaics, Isidore Odorico marked the city with his creations: the Blue House, the Hotel d’Anjou… The RU-Repaire Urbain presents an exhibition around this art-deco artist and highlights the creations of the mosaicist, in private and public buildings.

The free exhibition is visible from Tuesday to Saturday, from 1 p.m. to 6.30 p.m., with the possibility of visiting with a mediator (without reservation). This week, it will be exceptionally open from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday 19, on the occasion of the third evening-concert of Tempo Rives (see below), as will all the exhibitions of the Repaire Urbain.

A guided tour around the works of Odorico is also offered by Angers Patrimoine on Thursday 20 July. And to go further in the discovery of mosaics, the Repaire Urbain offers a workshop on the mosaic technique for adults on July 18 as well as a “game of tesserae” workshop for children on July 19.

On the agenda for the week
