Museum Without Walls
“The power of art is its ability to articulate human emotions and values such as beauty and truth. On the mountain, faced with such sublime vistas, the visitor can experience these works of art…completely removed from the gallery or museum, directly confronting the truth of nature. This is the true meaning of a museum without walls.”
– Paul Goodwin, Verbier 3-D curator.
The 3-D Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating monumental contemporary sculpture to promote art, education, and culture to international audiences.
Founded in 2010 by New York-based artist Madeleine Paternot and Verbier-based artist Kiki Thompson, the foundation creates educational and cultural experiences inspired by the stunning Alpine environment in Verbier, Switzerland.
The Verbier 3-D Residency and Sculpture Park is an annual contemporary art, cultural, and educational happening in Switzerland at an altitude of 2,300 meters between La Chaux and Ruinettes, where more than one million skiers and hikers access the park for free year round.
