The main players in the regeneration of the Social Housing "Tony Garnier"

Tony Garnier's Urban Museum is an OPAC
du Grand Lyon

It was established, between 1987 and 2001, by the artists of Cité de la Création and the inhabitants of the "Etats-Unis" area, gathered in a Tenants Committee.

The creation of the Museum would not have been possible without the support of many partners :

Research center Esthétique et Cités

Association of the Tony Garnier's Urban Museum

Ville de Lyon

Grand Lyon

Conseil Général du Rhône

Conseil Régional Rhône-Alpes

French State, Direction Départementale de l’Equipement du Rhône

In 1991, UNESCO awarded Tony Garnier's Urban Museum the World Decade of the Cultural Development Label. This international ackowledgement enabled Cité de la Création to commission
international artists to create six more painted walls.

The international dimension of
Tony Garnier's Urban Museum would not have seen the light without  the support of private sponsorship, which was awarded in 1994 through the  Sponsorship Oscar / Télérama Prize by the ADMICAL :

La Caisse d’Epargne Rhône-Alpes Lyon

EDF-GDF Services Lyon Métropole



In 2001, the SACVL (Limited Company in Construction of Lyon) joined the partners of
Tony Garnier's Urban Museum in sponsoring the creation of the 25th painting wall, "Chez Tony Garnier "

36, quai Fulchiron - BP 5001
69245 Lyon Cedex 05
