Journey to the Stars
26. 11. 2022 – 30. 4. 2023
Exhibition of illustrations with a program for children
Take a journey through magical landscapes to find the star of Bethlehem and be drawn into stories full of miracles dating back more than a thousand years. Be enchanted by the magic of the Garden of Eden, build the mythical Tower of Babel, and peer into a picturesque world where kings wander the desert and shepherds watch the night sky and await the birth of the baby Jesus.
The playful exhibition entitled Journey to the Stars will present, for the first time in the Czech Republic, the work of the world-famous and internationally acclaimed illustrator Štěpán Zavrel, who became a star of European children's books after his adventurous journey to freedom. His legacy is preserved in two museums in Italy and there are streets, squares, and an international summer illustrator school named after him, Le immagini della fantasia - Fondazione Štěpán Zavřel in the northern Italian town of Sarmede which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Exceptional illustrations will complement the 3+ Gallery's long-term exhibition project, Collection of Illustrations for Children.
