The Night of Museums 2019 event visited by more than 700 people

The night of museums is a traditional European event that happens in May when for one night museums open their doors, organising special events and allowing visitors for free.

In the spirit of Latvia’s centinery tale, the theme of the night this year was “Tālavas taurētājs” (Trumpeter of Tālava). Since in 2019 Latvia also celebrates the centinery of the War of Independence, museums were envited to recall both army leaders and those, whose weapons in the fight were a trumper and a word, a feather and a brush. Ludza museum chose our district’s hero, a real patriot of Latgale, excellent artist and poet  Antons Kūkojs, whose contribution to Ludza social and cultural life cannot be denied. He has founded Ludza J. Soikans’ art school and for many years worked as the head of it.

During the ceremony, the artist had admitted that he loves visiting Ludza where the environment for creating new works very pleasant. The artist said he never waits for some inner enlightenment or a feeling. He thinks that it’s only necessary to work, that is – if you see something you just stop and begin to paint.
