MSURS - Museum of Contemp. Art of Srpska

GlavnaPublic institution Museum of Contemporary Art of Republic of Srpska is a central museum institution for performance of museum activities in the Republic of Srpska.

Following a decision of the Banja Luka Town Council, the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Republic of Srpska was founded on 1971 and initially named the Art Gallery of Banja Luka. A campaign preceded the opening of the Gallery, launched by Yugoslavian and international fine artists, as a gesture of solidarity with the city of Banja Luka after it was hit by a massive earthquake on 26 and 27 October 1969. In solidarity with the devastated city, distinguished Yugoslavian painters, art historians and friends of Banja Luka collected around 750 art works to help the city, which were used to start the Gallery and made its core collection.
