The Sibiu branch of the UAPR joins the call of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival 2021, "Building hope together", organizing, within the Festival, in collaboration with the Brukenthal National Museum, the Inter-County Visual Arts Salon of the UAP Sibiu 2021 Branch.
The event is also connected to the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Baron Samuel von Brukenthal (1721-1803), an exceptional personality of Central European cultural and political life, whose "cultural model" marked the spiritual profile of this space over centuries. One of the baron's contributions was the support of the work of local artists who were his contemporaries. Thanks to him, the artistic education in Sibiu has had strength and continuity during the following centuries, influencing, over time, what we are today. The main theme of the exhibition was thus suggested, the exhibition being dedicated to the hope for a bright and secure future, based on the solid roots of tradition. We will celebrate the cultural work of Baron Brukenthal, and the spirit of the Enlightenment that promoted and urged the "joy of living the moment" under the sign of Knowledge and Beauty.
The tradition of the past years, to invite artists from other branches, continues, this time the invitation was addressed to the UAP Branches from Suceava, Deva and Bucharest.
