As part of the 150th anniversary of the Wallace fountains, the Mairie de Paris is organising an exhibition in the public space that pays tribute to Richard Wallace and his famous creation: the fountains.

As a philanthropist, he built fountains in Paris from 1872 onwards in response to the problem of lack of access to drinking water. Since then, you can still see these fountains with caryatids, so emblematic
of the Parisian landscape, at the turn of a street, a boulevard or a square.

The graphic universe and the colours are directly associated with the subject of the exhibition, adding a colourful and modern touch to make the story that the whole exhibition gives us accessible and clear.
