This lavishly illustrated book invites young readers to enter the world of museums and galleries. Illustrator David Böhm and writers Ondřej Chrobák, Rostislav Koryčánek and Martin Vaněk present a history of the gallery and show us how works of art are exhibited, all the services a gallery provides and how an exhibition comes into being. Readers will learn about treasures hoarded at Prague Castle by Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II, and how an unmade bed and a shark pickled in alcohol can be considered distinctive works of art. And they will find out how a gallery works and about all the people who work in it. After reading this book, children will no longer regard a gallery as a boring, inaccessible space; on the contrary, they will see it as a building where lots of interesting things go on, unexpected encounters take place and fascinating stories are revealed.
How to Make a Gallery has got a Special Mention in the Category Children´s books on art of the 2017 Bologna Ragazzi Award.
