Long Description:
FR On ne s'en lasse pas, mais certains la découvrent encore : la gare désaffectée de Châteauroux-les-Alpes a été transformée en oeuvre picturale !
Des graffeurs se sont en effet approprié la façade du bâtiment et en ont fait leur lieu d'expression, avec une gigantesque fresque représentant plusieurs personnages : un singe, une fillette sur une balançoire, ou encore un oiseau peintre... Une réhabilitation artistique réussie offrant une deuxième vie à cette ancienne gare.
