COLLECT, CARE, SHARE!

The 4th international exhibition of rare collections

December 10, 2016 - April 2, 2017
Exhibition extended until April 2, 2017

There is quite a number of people not realising that their homes contain a museum. According to law in Estonia a museum is defined as a place which collects, preserves and exhibits objects of cultural value. We can find many collectors but only a few of them exhibit their collections in public. That is why  for the 4th time already we give them a chance to do so at the Museum of New Art.
You are welcome to see paintings from the collection of Marianne Mikko, sensitive Estonian art from the collection of Margus Punab, cooking books from the year 1860 and tableware from Mikko Savikko's collection, bicycles of 1850-1930 (for men, women and children) from Toomas Piht's collection, Paul Firnhaber's carpet collection and Honore Daumier's graphics etc and Epp-Maria Kokamägi's mittens from Kihnu Island and Tõstamaa.

For children we have brought Kristiina Saar’s Japaneseanimation heroes. Vera Stanishevskaja’s collection surprises us with ceramic and glass horses. Riina Pull shows her embroidered blankets and the veteran collector Henno Sepp centers on the theme Mother and Child. Indrek Aija’s op-art-works of photo-postcards and Heiki Kongi’s sculptures made of trash found on the streets are amazingly unique.
With this exhibition we want to inspire our visitors with our message: Collect, Care, Share! Share the beauty with everyone who search for it and evaluate it... Cultural heritage should not only be carefully collected and kept but also kindly shared with thousands of pairs of eyes.

Curator: Mark Soosaar
The exhibition is supported by Estonian Cultural Endowment and the Town of Pärnu.
