Museum for Sokol

THE CITY of Liptovský Mikuláš will celebrate the 100th birthday of one of its most famous sons, the world-renowned painter Koloman Sokol, with the opening of museum in his name on December 12, in Pongrácovská Curia on Námestie Osloboditeľov 28. The artist, who currently lives in the US, is considered one of the most important personalities in fine arts in Slovakia.
The new museum will exhibit 70 graphic works, drawings, wooden sculptures and paintings. Some of the exhibited works were donated to the museum by the artist himself, his friends and family, while others come from a local gallery.
The ambitious project will also include an exhibition room for works by artists inspired by Sokol, a library, a study room and an art shop. Plans for the future include the construction of studios and flats for visiting artists, who would participate in creative workshops throughout the year.
