Barentin - Musée dans la Rue
Barentin "City of Arts" has 320 sculptures scattered throughout the city in its "street museum": 112 statues and busts of famous sculptors in the public space, and a permanent exhibition in the Camille Claudel Room with 80 sculptures.
Initiator of the "street museum" is the lawyer and politician André Marie (Honfleur 1897 - Rouen 1974, Wikipedia), who was mayor of Barentin from 1945 to 1974 and minister of national education. The town continues his initiative under the leadership of Michel Bentot, Mayor since 1990, with the purchase, maintenance and restoration of the sculptures, paintings and monuments.
