Facade Project Timelapse

Times of mystery and transformation: Send your work to Kunsthalle Praha

The pilot project of Kunsthalle Praha’s educational program is Patrons of Art. They have knowledge about art and are not afraid to use it! Each of their video lectures focuses on the art of one style, figure, or period. We start with so-called mail art.

Get inspired, create your own artwork, and send it to us at Kunsthalle, see the details here. We look forward to seeing your art!

The 2020 and 2021 pandemic has radically reduced such possibilities. Read more about the series.
