On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the Galicia Jewish Museum has launched an exhibition of Jewish-inspired street art. This unique exhibition will show murals inspired by Jewish culture.
A great number of famous Polish artists were invited to create their works on the premises of the museum. One of them won the competition to create a 120-square-metre mural on the exterior wall of the building. Using modern means of expression, the artists present their view of the liveliness and colour of Jewish culture.

The Galicia Jewish Museum, situated in the heart of Kazimierz, Krakow’s Jewish quarter, commemorates the victims of the Holocaust and celebrates the Jewish culture of Polish Galicia. It presents the Jewish history from a new perspective.
