PPAC: Prekmurje 7. – Pertoča and Mura

This post with a church and twin border towns separated by the river concludes this series from the northeasternmost part of Slovenia. For the last post I have saved possibly the biggest surprise of the day, and I’m not even religious. When we entered St. Helen’s Church in Pertoča my eyebrows shot up and thisContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 7. – Pertoča and Mura”

PPAC: Prekmurje 6. – Villa Moj mir and mineral water spring

This is not a regular public art post. It shows an old house given a new life and an eternal mineral water spring. First of all, I wish to thank our host Marsha for featuring my last week’s Lendava Cultural Centre post. I’m glad you liked it. Next week this series from one day inContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 6. – Villa Moj mir and mineral water spring”

PPAC: Prekmurje 5. – Lendava Cultural Centre

Do you feel it? A good day. Spring and victories in the air. And one happening building with wings. We are still in Prekmurje, in the head of the chicken which is Slovenia on the map. If you don’t believe me, have a look at my last Thursday Doors post with several doors from thisContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 5. – Lendava Cultural Centre”

Thursday Doors 3/2/22: Prekmurje

Prekmurje is the flat, Pannonian, NE region of Slovenia in the head of the chicken if you look at the map. I was there in 2019 and still haven’t showed all of its doors. And there is a drive-by of Austrian doors too. This is Slovenia. A reminder: There is Italy to the west, AustriaContinue reading “Thursday Doors 3/2/22: Prekmurje”

PPAC: Prekmurje 4. – Vinarium Tower

My one-day Pannonian tour from three years ago continues with a tower. The art of today’s post is in its architecture and the scenery of four countries visible from the top. I hope blobber Marsha, our host with a most realistic torn sock in her post, won’t mind too much if I include architecture amongContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 4. – Vinarium Tower”

Thursday Doors + CFFC: Door gifts + Lendava Castle

Every door is a gift, every gift is a door, and through its mouth we walk. Today is a rare occasion that my door post most happily answers to two challenges: Dan is our usual Thursday Doors host, whereas Cee, having fun connecting to other challenges, has chosen Thursday Doors to play with this week.Continue reading “Thursday Doors + CFFC: Door gifts + Lendava Castle”

PPAC: Prekmurje 3. – Lendava Castle

Before we exit the Castle after last week’s Hundertwasser exhibition, here are some artefacts from its permanent historical collection with a local tune in two versions. You will see some interesting sculptures, some weapons, the model of the train station and an impressive shield. If you wish more information, visit this site. We still haveContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 3. – Lendava Castle”

PPAC: Prekmurje 2. – Hundertwasser and Hasegawa

My apologies for this post, since this art was not really public. The exhibition was available in exchange for a small fee, and it was not visible from the street. Still, the vibrancy hopefully makes up for it. Here, let me show you. This is a card that I bought at this exhibition. I tookContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 2. – Hundertwasser and Hasegawa”

PPAC: Prekmurje 1. – Robert Jurak

When Marsha asked me recently what my next public art series would be, I still had no idea. And yet today starts a new series from Prekmurje, the region in the NE Slovenia that is a part of the vast Pannonian plain. First comes Robert Jurak, a welder artist. Prekmurje means “the land over theContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 1. – Robert Jurak”
