Metal symposium 2022

Metalové sympozium 2022, author: Infocentrum Mladá Boleslav

The metal symposium is being held for the ninth time this year. As a cultural event, the Metal Symposium is unique. During this event, artists create works that are then placed in public places to serve as a diversion for citizens and visitors alike. In Mladá Boleslav, another year of a unique meeting of artistic blacksmiths and sculptors with international participation will also take place. The Metal Symposium 2022 will once again offer the opportunity to watch the creation of impressive works of art from various metal materials.

You are cordially invited Monday - Friday 09:00 -17:00 to watch as four artists create four sculptures from a piece of sheet metal. Woodcarvers Václav Kyselka and Marian Maršálek will join in, Wednesday-Friday, creating on the theme of Boleslav athletes. Each of them will create from logs and make beautiful wooden benches.

Czech Republic - Jan Jírovec - Streetart - Metod Vlach Aviation Museum

Since 2018, Streetart has been a part of the Metal Symposium. Streetart is, compared to metal sculptures and wooden benches, a more dramatic change in public space. This year, street art will take place in four locations. At the Aviation Museum, you will find Jan Jirovec and his colleague from June 6 to June 10 - 3D street art on the theme of "the origins of aviation".

Czech Republic - Caer8th - Streetart - Parking house of Klaudián Hospital

In the parking house of the Klaudián Hospital (7th and 6th floor), from Monday, June 6 to Friday, June 10, an artist with the nickname Caer8th will create art on the theme of space and atmosphere. Caer8th will be building on earlier works from 2021, when he painted the 8th floor. A unique 360-degree painting is to be created in the parking house staircase, which will allow visitors to navigate and better find their car. Come see how this unique project is slowly coming together.

Slovak Republic - Lukero - Streetart - Krásná louka underpass

There are four underpasses under the train line at Krásná louka in Mladá Boleslav. Last year we have already beautified one of the underpasses with the help of Slovak artists Lukáš and Tomáš Lukero. They worked on the theme of the jungle and this year they are returning and will work on the theme of the African savannah. You are also welcome here from Monday to Friday.

Bondy centrum - Metro - Streetart - Vladimír Tůma

For the first time in 2019, we painted in the Bondy Center garage to somehow make parking in the otherwise grey garage more interesting for visitors. It's definitely worth going to see these works. This year, we are continuing this project in another corner of the Bondy Center garage and will feature the work of artist Vladimir Tuma on the theme of the Metro.

Concert of the band Laura and her tigers (Laura a její tygři)

On Friday evening there will be a closing ceremony of the symposium and from 18:00 the band Laura and her tigers will perform on the premises of the Industrial Secondary School Mladá Boleslav.
