“The color of my dreams”

Take part in the next Grande lessive® fall 2022

until October 16

The participative art project La Grande Lessive ®   hijacks the “Grandes lessives” of yesteryear, moments of sociability that punctuated the year, in spring and autumn. Created in 2006 by
the artist Joëlle Gonthier, La Grande Lessive® invites you to participate in a collective creation at a time
local and global thanks to digital. The only constraints are the seasonal theme, the format and the weight of the support: “The color of my dreams” on a 21x29.7 cm support (one A4 sheet) light enough to hold stretched out on a wire with two clothespins. It's open to everyone, young and old...


The color of your dreams can be drawn, painted, glued, black and white, written, flat or in
relief…, you can bring your material or ask for material at the reception, draw your
inspiration in the atmosphere of the museum of decorative arts, facing objects or works, in the garden or elsewhere, drop off your creations before October 16, and come back to share the moment of collective hanging on October 20 2022 (a video of the drying will be produced, sent to La Grande Lessive ®   for worldwide distribution.

Every day from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. except Mondays and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. from September 20
