"Landau voller Optimismus!" - Landau full of optimism, sculptural installation, Landau, 2021

Living up to their name, forty golden optimist sculptures created by Ottmar Hörl have radiated remarkable optimism – in Landau – since 29 January 2021. The sculptural installation will be on display until midst of March.

The "Landau Full of Optimism" campaign has been organised to accompany the second wave of the coronavirus and send a positive, encouraging signal to the people living in Landau. The move was started by the Büro für Tourismus, or Bureau of Tourism (BfT), the city's arts & culture office as well as numerous other local partners who succeeded in gaining Ottmar Hörl's support for the campaign straightaway.

Remarkable for the confidence they convey, the figures are now being shown in an exceptional position behind the front windows and on the balcony of the Landau town hall. "The coronavirus pandemic is one of the greatest challenges for our country and the whole world," emphasised Lord Mayor Thomas Hirsch. "We still need some stamina, but we have reason to be optimistic. We wish to express this idea with our campaign. Chin and thumbs up!"

The sculptural installation will be on display until midst of March, after which the figures are offered for purchase. Further optimistic activities are planned over the year.
