Art & Culture
In the area of art and culture the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation supports only carefully selected projects, predominantly in Waiblingen and Stuttgart. The Galerie Stihl Waiblingen, the “Pavilion for Waiblingen” by Ólafur Elíasson, the sundial by Tobias Rehberger, the roundabout sculpture by Stephan Balkenhol – the list of the works of art the foundation has initiated and financed for Waiblingen in the past few years could be continued. As to whether the idea is to give Waiblingen citizens works of art by world famous artists or make them accessible in the Galerie: “Our aim is to make art available to everyone. It is an enrichment and pleasure to be enjoyed by all, regardless of age or background”, say the patrons. There are also selected projects in Stuttgart such as support for the large exhibitions in the State Museum Stuttgart, the Hugo Wolf Academy’s International Art Song Competition and other individual projects of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.
