about the project
Why a sculpture
Two exhibitions that are important to us are the mobile cultural offer of presenting the works of Polish artists so that their works are available to the viewer outside their place of creation.Project Subsidized by funds from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Fund for the Promotion of Culture - state purpose fund.

The name of the project refers to the Latin phrase meaning ''on and on'. It is a paraphrase of non plus ultra (nothing else but) follows the words inscribed by the mythological Hercules on the two poles he erected at the supposed end of the world. Through the realization of exhibitions showing the most important trends in Polish contemporary sculpture, we want to encourage their audiences to continue their search - to develop themselves not only in the field of art knowledge, but also their spirituality - to fulfill the idea still further.
The first in a series of exhibitions - Masters of - will exhibit works by artists who are, one could say, the ''pillars'' of Polish contemporary sculpture. The exhibition will present a cross-section of the work of these older generations of sculptors; the main currents of the activities of individual artists and the styles they practiced in sculpture. The event is intended to remind the public of artists uncommonly seen in Polish contemporary galleries, but who have contributed significantly to the current condition of Polish sculpture. Presented will be: Jan Kucz, Barbara Zbrożyna, Władysław Hasior, Stanisław Słonina, Wiesław Fijałkowski, Antoni Rząsa, Stanisław Kulon and Zofia Demkowska.
The second exhibition will be an exhibition of Students of sculpture - focusing on sculptors of the younger generation. As in the case of the first exhibition in the series, here too the aim will be to present the styles in which younger artists from the Polish sculpture arena create, as well as their main currents of activity. The two exhibitions, although different in theme, are ideologically linked - as they are an expression of the desire both to appreciate the creators of Polish culture and to stimulate interest in art among participants of different everyday life.
