Ladislav Sutnar Gallery
The Ladislav Sutnar Gallery is located a few steps from Republic Square and is part of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art at Pilsen’s University of West Bohemia. You will primarily find the work of students and faculty members here, including students’ final projects, dissertations and thematic exhibits.
You can go to the Ladislav Sutnar Gallery to see exhibitions of both local and visiting pedagogues and students of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art. Here you will mostly see pieces of contemporary design and applied arts.
This university gallery is also actively participating in the Pilsen project as the European Capital of Culture in 2015, as it introduces the public to the work of related foreign artists, designers and institutions.
Legacy of Ladislav Sutnar
As evident given the name of the gallery, the unique legacy of the personality and works of Ladislav Sutnar, the artist and Pilsen native, is exceedingly significant for the university. Every year a large section of the exhibition is dedicated to honouring Ladislav Sutnar and his rich work of both poster and typography art.
