Drago Jančar je eden najpomembnejših sodobnih slovenskih pisateljev. Za svoje delo je prejel vrsto domačih in mednarodnih literarnih nagrad. Velja za najbolj prevajanega slovenskega pisatelja. Zanj pa so največja nagrada bralci njegovih del. Verjame v svobodno družbo in ustvarjalnost. Za »resnično zvezdo« je mednarodno uveljavljeno oblikovalko Niko Zupanc razglasil častnik Wall Street Journal. Njene izdelke: luči, stole, zofe, ogledala, pa tudi igrače je ameriška revija Elle označila za »pank eleganco«. Svojevrstnost njenih izdelkov ji je odprla vrata v svet svetovno priznanih oblikovalcev. Kar nekaj njenih izdelkov je že zelo prepoznavnih. Na primer svetilki Lolita in Black Cherry. Slamnikarstvo je pomemben del slovenske kulturne dediščine, saj je bilo med 18. in 20. stoletjem med pomembnejšimi obrtmi na Slovenskem. Žal pa je začela po drugi svetovni vojni tradicija pletenja slamnatih kit in izdelovanja slamnikov zamirati. Da ne bi šla popolnoma v pozabo, danes skrbi Slamnikarski muzej v središču Domžal. Prirodoslovni muzej je osrednji naravoslovni muzej v Sloveniji. Izhaja iz Deželnega muzeja, ki je bil ustanovljen že davnega leta 1821. Hrani pa nacionalno, evropsko in svetovno pomembne zbirke. Med njimi sta ustanovni zbirki muzeja – zbirka mineralov Žige Zoisa in zbirka konhilij, lupin mehkužcev z vsega sveta, Franca Hohenwarta Sanjske pokrajine akademske slikarke Apolonije Simon so kot opomin na ekološko katastrofo, ki nam preti. Te podobe pokrajin se k njej kar naprej vračajo, zato jih njena roka vztrajno zarisuje na platno. Tisto, kar v Apoloniji Simon vzbuja koncetracijo in energijo, pa je stara kitajska borilna veščina Tai ji quan.. *** AUTHOR DRAGO JANČAR Drago Jančar is one of the most prominent contemporary Slovenian authors. He has received numerous national and international literary awards for his work and is also considered the most translated Slovenian writer. To him, however, the greatest prize are the readers of his works. He firmly believes in free society and creativity. DESIGNER NIKA ZUPANC An internationally acclaimed designer, Nika Zupanc has been named a “real star” by the Wall Street Journal. Her designs, such as lamps, chairs, sofas, mirrors, as well as toys, have been labelled as “punk elegance” by the US edition of Elle magazine. Her unique designs have propelled her into the world of globally renowned designers. Quite a few of her products, for example, the Lolita and Black Cherry lamps, are already highly recognisable. THE CRAFT OF STRAW HAT MAKING The straw hat making craft is an important part of the Slovenian cultural heritage as it was one of the most important crafts in Slovenia between the 18th and the 20th centuries. Unfortunately, after World War II, the tradition of making straw braids and hats began to die down. This is why the Straw Hat Making Museum in the centre of Domžale is now making sure that this craft will never fall into oblivion completely. THE SLOVENIAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY The Slovenian Museum of Natural History is the leading museum of natural history in Slovenia. It was originally established in 1821 as the Provincial Museum of Carniola. It is now home to national, European and other internationally important collections. Among them are also the museum’s founding collections – the Žiga Zois’ mineral collection and the collection of conchylia, mollusc shells from all over the world, by Franz Hohenwart. PAINTER APOLONIJA SIMON The dreamy landscapes of academy-trained painter Apolonija Simon are like a reminder of an ecological disaster that looms over us. These images of landscapes keep coming to her, prompting her to relentlessly inscribe them into the canvas. It is the old Chinese martial art of Tai ji quan, however, that stimulates the focus and energy of Apolonija’s work.
