When coming across the Bookyard by Massimo Bartolini, one might have to do a double take as it showcases an outdoor field transformed into a library.
The outdoor public library located in Ghent, Belgium, is an art installation created by Italian artist Massimo Bartolini for Track, a Belgian Art Festival that showcases city space conversions. Bartolini has taken nature and combined it with the art of literature, allowing readers to buy and read books right off the grassy fields of St. Abbey's Vineyard.
Avid readers and art lovers can take a piece of this sculptural work home as books are on sale to benefit the public libraries in the area. Bookyard by Massimo Bartolini will continue rolling in the fields until the end of the exhibition on September 16th.
