Exhibition: CITIES

Exhibition of Division of Freehand Drawing, Painting and Sculpture of Faculty of Architecture of Cracow University of Technology, accompanying the Seventh International Conference on The Constructed Environmen.

25–26 May 2017, International Cultural Centre, Rynek Główny 25, 31-008 Krakow

The "CITIES" exhibition is an image of the places seen by the staff of the Division of Freehand Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture, within the Faculty of Architecture of Cracow University of Technology. They talk in different ways about the surrounding world and the cities in which we came to live. They show places in metropolises and smaller cities, sometimes spectacular and sometimes mysterious and inaccessible. They study the living organism of the city and capture the fleeting moments of the inhabitants' lives. They look into the alleyways and absorb the architecture. The different techniques that they use, emphasize a rich workshop and extraordinary talent. Here, you can find graphics, painting, photography, freehand drawing.

The Division of Freehand Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture has existed within the Faculty of Architecture of Cracow University of Technology since 1945. Excellent professors and educators create a list of wonderful names that have a great share in the cultural heritage of Krakow and Poland. Minor artists have taken part in countless collective exhibitions, and the amount of individual exhibitions around the world can not be counted. Their works are located in the most famous galleries and museums around the world. But they do not forget about the education of future architect - they combine the passion of art and the education of students to develop their imagination, talent, and ability to present their own projects.
