Since it was remodeled, a few months ago, it is even more beautiful. It is precisely there that the Snoopy Parade is installed, an urban art installation that invites the public to visit the statues of the most famous dog from the comic books, re-created by various artists, painters and other authors of inspired artistry.
The 20 statues, 2.60 m high, can be seen until August 15. There are “Snoopies” signed by names like Herman José, Nuno Markl, Ana Galvão, Anna Westerlund, Marta de Castro, Graça and Gracinha Viterbo, Pedro Ribeiro, Vanda Miranda or Vasco Palmerim.

Inserted in the celebrations of the 60 years of Snoopy, the exhibition aims to raise funds for UNICEF and the Schools for Africa program.
