The International Children's Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice 1999 – 2009, originals on panels
The exhibition presents original works by children awarded between 1999 and 2009 in one of the world's biggest and oldest exhibitions of children's art work. The winning works are mounted on solid panels (both sides) and protected against damage by plexifoil. An accompanying introductory panel focusing on the exhibition's history and presence is provided in both Czech and English; all the other pictures provide bilingual captions.
