The cultural impact of porcelain exhibition puts Herendi style porcelains into focus. The items on display include famous, tulip-patterned collectibles designed by Turkish artist Serdar Gülün for the Herendi Porcelain Factory.

This is the first show to open at the recently-founded arts center, the Gül Baba Kulturális Központ. Though it’s only been in operation for a few days, the number of visitors is already on the rise, and the organizers are hoping to draw in even more people in the course of the summer season.

“This is the first step toward building a lively cultural hub in Rózsadomb, a quiet, suburban area near the city center. Our events are designed with locals and tourists in mind, bringing together the various micro-communities who make up the neighborhood,” stated Mihaly Varga, Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament for district II.
