THE MUSEUM SUMMER NIGHT
The Museum Summer Night, held annually on every third Saturday in June, is the largest national promotional campaign by the museums and galleries of Slovenia, joined by a number of other institutions and organizations that carry out programmes in the field of cultural heritage, art, culture and history. The initiator of the campaign, Lili Šturm, senior curator at the International Centre of Graphic Arts, first coordinated the project in 2003, conceiving it as a relaxed way to spend one’s time in meeting the institutions and their subject areas. This well attended event that today brings together some 40 cities, 80 institutions and 200 individual events was coordinated by the International Centre of Graphic Arts under the auspices of the Union of the Museums of Slovenia up till 2012.
Lili Šturm received the Valvasor Honorary Recognition in 2013 for establishing and managing the Museum Summer Nights.
