Lullaby: Babies in Slovak Folk Dress April 13-Oct. 9: Slovak photographer Monika Klučiarová combines stunning Slovak folk dress (kroje) with adorable 10-day old babies to create spectacular portraits. The artist perceives the Slovak folk kroje as mosaics consisting of many details that result in one priceless whole. In addition to the Slovak cultural heritage value, the kroje showcase incredible colors and geometric and other patterns that naturally lend themselves as objects of photographic art. This exhibition is sponsored by Western Fraternal Life.
