Even these days there are still several ways to enjoy art. The first one is the online collections that museums and galleries offer. So from the comfort of your own home you can admire, for example, the digitized painting Head of Medusa, which returned to the Moravian Gallery in Brno this March.

The second option is virtual tours prepared for exhibitions, videos or interactive map applications. Pay a visit to the online video tour of the Temple of Stone exhibition, which is located in the premises of former water reservoirs and which was opened to the public in June last year. The third way to address your creativity lurks inside packages with ideas and imaginative activities that will turn you into an artist. These creative bags are offered, for example, by Brno House of Arts. The fourth possibility is to see art live in a public space. Take a walk to the House of Arts, which now proudly boasts a monstrous outdoor Oil on House installation, made out of 50,000 used plastic bottles.

Blossoms abound!
