Open Mural Gallery
Open City Gallery (Otvorená mestská galéria – O.M.G) is based on the concept of a gallery in the public space, consisting chiefly of murals on the facades of houses. Its primary aim is to increase the aesthetic value of public space, which would naturally lead to the reduction of visual smog and facilitate the raising of cultural awareness. Košice is currently the only city in Slovakia that hosts a project with this degree of specificity. The gallery also includes a work by polish artist M-CITI WARAS, the winner of the 2013 award for the best street art piece.
