A special photography exhibition has been organized by the City of Luxembourg and the Ministry of State to honor this iconic landmark. Created by the talented Luxembourgish sculptor Claus Cito, the Gëlle Fra stands proudly on Constitution Square, at the heart of the capital.
The exhibition features a curated collection of 10 photographs that take visitors on a visual journey through the monument's history over the past century. From its grand inauguration in 1923 to its enduring presence today, these images offer glimpses of both historical and thematic significance.
Among the captivating snapshots are scenes of the monument's unfortunate demolition during World War II by Nazi occupiers, as well as its remarkable participation in the Shanghai World Expo in 2010.
The official ceremony for the exhibition took place on May 27, 2023, with esteemed guests including His Royal Highness the Grand Duke, Prime Minister and Minister of State Xavier Bettel, and Mayor of the City of Luxembourg, Mrs. Lydie Polfer, in attendance.
For those eager to explore this visual tribute, the exhibition will be open to the general public at Villa Pauly, located at 57 Boulevard de la Pétrusse, L-2320 Luxembourg.
Admission is free, and visitors can immerse themselves in the exhibition's captivating photographs from June 8 to July 7, 2023.
The exhibition hours are from Tuesday to Friday, between 1pm and 4.30pm, providing ample opportunity for art enthusiasts, history lovers, and curious individuals to experience the Gëlle Fra's legacy firsthand.
