Arts Granary – MagtArt

Two former Eszterházy estate granary buildings, one in Slovakia and one in Hungary, were renovated at a cost of 2 million Euro (2.6 million USD) by the Hungarian Aggtelek National Park and the Slovakian ALMA-Centre for the Restoration and Protection of Folk Architecture and Traditions within the framework of the Hungarian –Slovakian Cross-Border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013 (project HUSK/0801/131/0046). The granaries, built in Torna County at the end of the 18th century, managed to survive the years and have been named monuments designated for ecotourism.



The Touristic Value of Granary Protection
The Hungarian MagtArt building celebrated its grand opening in Bódvaszilas with Central and Eastern Europe’s (CEE) first international exhibition of nature art. State Secretary for the Environment Dr. Zoltán Illés, and State Secretary for Culture Géza Szőcs inaugurated the building on August 17, 2012. The structure is utilised for nature art exhibitions, symposiums, lectures, workshops and art camps. With its cultural, scientific, artistic and educational programmes, Aggtelek National Park aims  to make MagtArt one of the most prominent cultural institutions in the region.
In addition, apartments were constructed in the roof area in order to accommodate artists in residence, workshop facilitators and participants, conferences and tourists.

MagtArt’s permanent exhibition features works by such famous nature artists as Alan Sonfist (USA), Ko Seug-hyun (Korea), Liu Po-chun (Taiwan), Pál Péter (Romania), Anke Mellin (Germany), Ahmad Nadalian (Iran), Bukta Imre (Hungary), Erőss István (Hungary), Pokorny Attila http://koby.ro/  (Romania), Szigeti Gábor Csongor (Hungary), Balázs Péter (Hungary), Takács Máté (Hungary), and Tomas Gugyela (Slovakia).
