And now the time (25th September: 21:00 CET / 12:00 pm PST) has come: The Summer of Arts in 2015 will open the regions with their exhibitions and we will celebrate this with a grand opening.  Friends from all grids are invited to participate in the opening event. We will celebrate the opening with a party featuring Whirly Placebo’s Live Music and DJ Pete Zachariah. But that will not be all, for two months you can expect readings in Both English and German, guided tours, live music and parties on the exhibition grounds.
