Preparation and realization of the exhibition of paintings by Mila Doleželová and Jiří Mareš
The painter bequeathed her work to the Czech Dominican Province with the wish that her monumental paintings with religious and Romani themes remain accessible to the public, preferably in Telč. After a series of negotiations, an agreement was reached on the long-term loan of the entire estate, including the works of her husband Jiří Mareš, including around 190 paintings and drawings, to the administration of Masaryk University.
The creation of a permanent exhibition and the fulfilment of Míla Doleželová's wishes is almost within reach.
The exhibition will be opened in spring 2023.
Creation of an art studio and a dance and music hall
In addition to the exhibition, there will be two art studios providing space for art, music and dance workshops and classes. In cooperation with the Museum of Romani Culture, which is a partner of the project, this will create facilities for various educational and cultural activities for school pupils from the region and for the wider public.
Access to cultural monuments for the visually, physically and hearing impaired
Of course, the whole range of planned activities will also be accessible to the disabled. One of the important ambitions of the project is to create an open community centre in the existing site, which will be accessible to all without discrimination.
Series of educational and cultural events
Within the framework of activities designed to lead to a common intercultural dialogue, events including seminars and workshops on the themes of Roma art and music are being prepared.
During the music workshop, participants will, for example, get acquainted with Roma songs or try to set motifs from Míla Doleželová's paintings to music. Under the guidance of the lecturer and leading Romani artist Josef Feč, the music workshop will be concluded with a joint concert of the participants.
