The piano – a fetish of culture, a memento of history…
Art at High Noon! Workshops for seniors
Subject: The piano – a fetish of culture, a memento of history…
Presented by: Andrzej Gawroński
A series of meetings devoted to art and culture in a broad sense, addressed to people aged 60+. The meetings offer discussions on contemporary art, and creative activities that develop cognitive processes, improving manual dexterity by learning different art techniques and forms of art.
An instrument. A piece of furniture. A memento of history. A work tool of virtuosos. The object coveted by connoisseurs. Deposit of capital for nouveau riches… – all this can be said about the piano! Bydgoszcz and the nearby Ostromecko are the places permanently connected with the “piano history of Poland.” One of the current guardians of the “playing heritage” is Andrzej Gawroński, who will conduct the workshops.
Andrzej Gawroński – guardian of the Andrzej Szwalbe collection of historic pianos in Ostromecko, manager of the Palace studio at the Palace and Park Complex Ostromecko, Municipal Cultural Centre in Bydgoszcz.
