The large-scale publication “Celebrating the Everyday. Architectural sculpture with attributes of work, transport, commerce and finance” presents a detailed exploration of how work-related themes have been embodied in architectural sculpture. It was published by the Ostrava branch of the National Heritage Institute in collaboration with the Gallery of Fine Arts in Ostrava. The publication is the outcome of a long-term research project focusing on themes of work in architectural sculpture – a topic that had not previously been explored thoroughly in the Czech context. The project assessed a substantial number of examples of architectural sculpture; it traced how during the 20th century (especially in the 1920s/30s and then during the 1950s), themes related to work were reflected in the sculptural elements of numerous buildings, thus helping to accentuate the structures’ significance.
