Art Out & About: A Drunken Angel

Things to Do, What's New — By Jacy Meyer on November 22, 2010 at 4:36 am

Prague spirits are quite invigorating, and the colder the weather gets the more enticing the pub becomes. But be sure to get outside and view sculptor Stefan Milkov’s Opilý Anděl (Drunken Angel) right in the heart of Malostranská on Malostranské náměstí.

This beautiful guy does seem a bit low, but is still standing perfectly upright. Be sure to walk around the back. See the names listed there? Milkov meant the statue to be a tribute to the artists whose names are listed on this work. And where exactly will you find this tipsy being? Right in front of Malostranská beseda, a great cultural venue we recently wrote about. If you like this sculpture by Milkov, head to the top floor of Malostranská beseda where there’s an exhibition of his work until January 9.
