Description

Slovenian Museum & Archives Presents an Exhibit on France Prešeren - Slovenia's Greatest Poet

France Prešeren, widely recognized as the greatest Slovene classical poet, has authored numerous poetic works which are tremendously popular in Slovenian literature, and also wrote the lyrics in the Slovenian National Anthem. The Slovenian Museum and Archives (6407 St. Clair Ave., Cleveland) will open an interactive exhibit featuring music and songs that utilizes France Prešeren’s lyrics, on loan from the Prešeren House (museum) in Kranj, Slovenia. The “Prešeren Room” at the adjoining Slovenian National Home will also be open, and will feature recently discovered manuscripts of Prešeren’s work. The exhibit runs from 6:30-9:30pm, and will begin with a short lecture introducing the exhibit. Light refreshments will be provided and admission is free and open to the public.
