We are looking for murals in Maribor

As part of the Maribor Art Gallery’s project Art in a public space, we are looking for and inventorying all murals made in Maribor during 20th and 21st century. We are interested in frescos, sgraffito, graffiti, mosaics and reliefs that are/were accessible to the public in- and outside institutions and other buildings (lobbies, hallways, meeting rooms, etc.). We attached our working list of murals below, but let us know if you think of any other. The purpose of this project is to inventory the art production in the public space and promote it to the widest possible audience. The contact person is Mojca Štuhec at:  mojca.stuhec@ugm.si.
