110 years of school building in Stari Grad110 YEARS OF SCHOOL BUILDING IN STARI GRAD
26 January 2018 – still open

Exhibition authors: Mladen Domazet, Vilma Stojković, Andrea Devlahović
Graphic design: Viktor Popović

This exhibition presents an overview of the history of schooling in Stari Grad, which has a long tradition since the first primary school for boys was opened in 1828 and for girls in 1869. Particular emphasis is placed on the construction of the new school building in 1908, as a result of local initiatives due to which the municipality entered a long-term debt burden. Of course, with this the municipality expressed unequivocal views on its own understanding of the role of child education and training. Numerous archive materials were used during the production of the exhibition (Archives of the Stari Grad Museum and Museum of the Dominican Monastery, Archives of Petar Hektorović Primary School, Archives Radoslavić, Kovačević, Zaninović, Bogdanić).

Hvar island's dessertsHVAR ISLAND’S DESSERTS
3 – 31 August 2017

Exhibition authors: Vilma Stojković, Jelena Ivanišević
Graphic design: Ivan Klepac
Photographs: Mario Romulić, Vilma Stojković

The sweet island of Hvar is most definitely an interesting topic, not only for gourmands and bakers attracted to its tradition, but also for its museologists, and especially ethnographers and anthropologists of food. The history of dessert preparation is closely related to the island’s customs and the yearly cycle, a relationship unaltered to this day. Marica Buratović and Flora Turner Vučetić worked on island customs relating to sweet items and their history, and their knowledge was a great help in creating this exhibition. It is no coincidence that this exhibition is taking place during the fortieth anniversary of the paprenjok (“gingerbread”) exhibition at which Toni Politeo opened his gallery in Tvrdalj.

This exhibition covers all the traditional island sweets, including the occasional forgotten dessert available at the museum table. Such desserts include those our grandparents made – biša, kotonjoda, škanjate and cakes which to this day remain an essential part of all festivities – cviti, paprenjaci, hrustule, pašurate, bruštuloni omenduli and sweets as simple as dried figs or arancini (candied orange zest).
