On 15 May 2015 the 6th finale of the competition Do You Have a Knack for Art? took place in the Centre for Contemporary Art DOX in Prague. Altogether 23 projects by high school students from across the Czech Republic advanced to the finale. These projects were evaluated by the jury of art professionals from learning departments and curators of the National Gallery in Prague, Moravian Gallery in Brno, Centre for Contemporary Art DOX, Lidická gallery, Post Vellum company and the members of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award.
The most interesting project according to the jury was presented by students of the High School and College of Art and Design and College in Brno. “Political Art” referenced the jubilee of the end of the WWII. The final student works are based on the above mentioned topic as well as on an arbitrary subject matter with a similar message. Form, artistic approach and medium is up to the students themselves. The jury evaluates primarily the quality of the work and whether it met the given criteria.
The award was handed over by the artist Evžen Šimera (Scholastika).
