A team of street artists is turning the Bulgarian village Staro Zhelezare into an Open Air Gallery. A Polish-Bulgarian husband-and-wife team along with their students are recreating the 20th century’s greatest masterpieces in the small village in central Bulgaria. For the last three years, every July and August, they are turning slowly the village into a celebration of art and country life, with portraits of local residents adorning many of the village streets.

This year’s project, which is part of the official program for Plovdiv’s 2019 run as European Cultural Capital, is bringing the best of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, including reproductions of work by Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp and Jackson Pollock.
