The department focuses on music, fine arts, literary science, architecture, design, fashion, film and theater. You can also choose from a variety of music material and professional music, art and literary magazines. The estate of the city archivist Ján Nepomuk Batka is also located here.
You can enjoy music in the form of vinyl records and CDs, which are available for listening in the Music Studio on the first floor. The studio also gives you the opportunity to play musical instruments – electric piano and guitar.
In the Artotéka Gallery on the second floor, we regularly present exhibitions of mostly young authors. You can always visit the gallery during the opening hours of the library.
Discover contemporary art at the library’s gallery. We regularly prepare for you exhibitions that, in the concept of Diana Čižmárová, focus mainly on classical graphic techniques and their current interpretations.
Artotéka Gallery has been providing a space for emerging as well as established authors since 1991. Every year, it also participates in the Month of Photography event.
In addition to exhibitions, you can also visit the events of the accompanying program and other cultural and educational events.
