MSC Cruises launches an artist competition to design the future MSC Euribia

Taking advantage of the International Artist Day, MSC Cruises offers artists and designers from around the world to transform the hull of the MSC Euribia into a giant work of art with the objective of communicating the importance of respecting the environment.

The most advanced ship to date in the MSC fleet in environmental matters, she was named in honor of Eurybia, the ocean deity of Greek mythology, known for having mastered the winds, meteorology and constellations to control the ocean. .

The promise of this vessel is to master the most advanced environmental technologies in order to protect our marine ecosystem.

To do this, MSC Cruises invites artists from around the world to create a truly unique work of art inspired by the sea and its precious ecosystem. This work will be permanently exhibited throughout the hull of the ship and will sail alongside it around the world.

Objective 0 emissions in 2050

This initiative once again emphasizes the company’s commitment to environmental protection and to achieving its goal of zero net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.

Entries will be examined by an international jury, including French artist Jben, known for his giant ephemeral drawings on the sand that disappear with a rising tide, architect Martin Francis and Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of the Cruise Division of the MSC Group. Jben has traveled the world to sculpt in sand – the United States, France, Morocco, the Netherlands and Portugal – with the aim of raising awareness of environmental challenges and to encourage the protection and preservation of marine life.

The competition will be open for eight weeks, starting October 25, 2021.
