“Back to Hogwarts: A MinaLima Exhibition” Now Displayed in Paris Train Station
MinaLima, the graphic design duo behind much of the art of the Wizarding World franchise, is no stranger to exhibitions all around the world, including the newest House of MinaLima in Paju, South Korea. Yet another new MinaLima exhibition has just opened, however, as MinaLima quietly announced on Twitter.
This time, fans in Paris, France, will be able to view some of MinaLima’s art inspired by the Harry Potter films at the Gare Saint-Lazare, a train station officially known by the name Paris-Saint-Lazare. As noted in the tweets from MinaLima, the exhibition is being called Harry Potter: illustré par MinaLima (or “Harry Potter: Illustrated by MinaLima”) in French and Back to Hogwarts: A MinaLima Exhibition in English.
✨ Witches and wizards of Paris ✨ Head down to the St Lazare train station for our “Back to Hogwarts: a MinaLima exhibition” until October 15th. Let our illustrations take you away from the busy muggle station into a world full of magic 💫 https://t.co/MgzgANecvJ

The version of the tweet in French, quoted in the English-language tweet, includes photographs of some of the art that is being displayed on the train station’s walls until October 15. (One piece, for instance, features whimsical illustrations of both the Burrow and one of the Herbology greenhouses.) The Gare Saint-Lazare is located at 13 Rue d’Amsterdam, 75008 Paris, France; however, it is not clear if the art is only accessible to passengers who have valid train tickets.
