Exhibition of children’s drawings opens

More than 700 drawings were sent to SOS Children's Village Croatia between September 1 and September 27. Once the voting was completed, the winning illustrations that will appear in the book The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children were announced. Today, an exhibition featuring all submitted works opened in the Little School at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibition will remain open to public until November 4, 2012.

In cooperation with the Educational Department of the Museum of Contemporary Art, 230 works are physically displayed at the Little School premises, and all the submitted works are being screened at the same location. Additionally, 32 drawings that earned the most votes will be published in the book The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children, scheduled to be released in late November. The expert judges from the Educational Department of the Museum have awarded each of the authors of the three best drawings with a set of annual free tickets for MCA, an interactive CD ROM for children Adventures of Vito and Nada and a cup featuring professor Balthazar, one of the most famous characters ever created by the Zagreb School of Animated Films.

The opening ceremony included the performance by the Little Fairy Tale Theatre from Lekenik, music by the singer Žanmari Lalić and the guitar player from her band J’Animals, Gordan Dragić, and the presence of Dragon, our mascot.


“We are very happy with the response and the number of drawings we received, and with the creativity and imagination of children that this campaign revealed. Starting today, you can see the results at the Museum of Contemporary Art. I would also like to use this opportunity to thank the Museum for giving us space to showcase all the richness of children’s imagination. To everyone who took part in the contest or the voting, thank you so much. We had participants from all parts of Croatia, even from Switzerland, Denmark and England. We hoped this contest would bring SOS Children's Villages in Croatia closer, but we also wanted to encourage other children to express themselves artistically and reward their work and talent. Our SOS Children's Villages see the task of nurturing children’s creativity as an integral part of their daily work, and we are very proud that our children’s drawings are also part of this exhibition”, said Wendy Zečić, member of the SOS Children's Village Croatia Board of Directors.

The exhibition is on view Tuesday – Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
