The intention is to combine the vision of a future Europe of individual representatives of contemporary art and create an unique work of art, a strong artistic appeal, a common message of artists the symbol of European integration.
Project of Infinite Canvas
The project is based on the principle of "endless" canvas, on which individual artists realize their idea, each according to its nature. Each artist painted "their" part of the canvas, on which after rewinding continues another artist. This procedure was created mainly abroad, the 400-meter painted canvas that is exposed along with donations of artifacts from artists in the permanent exhibition at the Gallery of OPE Vojna Memorial near Příbram.
Since the beginning of 2016, the project expanded to include the works of handicapped children and adults creators.
