Party in the 21st Century @ National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library
Jan 18 – Apr 19 all-day
Party in the 21st Century @ National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library

Party in the 21 st Century, an art exhibit celebrating the nearly extinct Slovak
“parta”, opens January 18 at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library.
The parta is a type of fancy headband that brides often wore on their wedding day. The festive and
ceremonial hair stylings were decorated in designs unique in every region of Slovakia, varying in shapes,
sizes, materials used, ribbons and accessories.
While the tradition of the parta, or party in plural form, has fallen into oblivion, Slovak
photographers Zuzana Sénášiová and Ľubomír Sabo, producing under LSZ Photography brand, art
painter Sarah I. Avni and ethnologist Katarína Chabrečeková, teamed up to bring it back to life. The
result of their three-year project is a collection of artwork that celebrates the nearly extinct “party” and
wreaths from all over Slovakia, presented in a modern art design that combines photography and
painting.
Party in the 21st Century will be on display in the Anderson Gallery through April 19. The exhibit is
sponsored by Western Fraternal Life.

Open Coffee – New Bohemia @ NewBo City Market
Jan 24 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am
Open Coffee - New Bohemia @ NewBo City Market

NewBo Open Coffee meets on the 2nd and 4th Friday every month. No agenda, just good coffee and an engaging conversation. It’s designed to be a community conversation open to everyone. The topics of discussion are decided by the people that attend. Seriously, no agenda just great coffee and conversation.

NewBo Open Coffee started in August 2012 in the back of the Brewed Cafe. When Richard Marsceau sold Brewed Cafe to the Shrivers and Danielsons it became Brewhemia, NewBo Open Coffee remained. When Brewhemia moved from the CSPS Hall to The National CR, NewBo Open Coffee moved with it.

Today, we meet at Roasters at New Bo. We continue to meet on the 2nd and 4th Friday every month from 8 am to 9 am. Get there early and grab a drink and something to eat!
