Lviv Municipal Art Center occupies a residential building number 11 down Stefanyka Street, surrounded by various cultural institutions. Our neighbors are Stefanyk National Science Library, Borys Voznytsky Lviv National Art Gallery, and the Lviv Art Palace.
This Neo-Gothic townhouse belonged to Leon Sapiga and was built in the mid-1970s by the project of Lviv architect Adolf Kuhn. At different times, it served as newspaper editorial offices, community residents, studios, and as National Ossoliński Institute’s bookstore library.
You can learn more about the history of the building on Center for Urban History’s website. From our side, we welcome you to come and see the building with your own eyes.
