Mihai Oroveanu

Cu adâncă tristețe, Amicii MNAC anunță dispariția dlui Mihai Oroveanu (20 sept. 1946 – 31 aug. 2013), fondatorul și directorul general al Muzeului Național de Artă Contemporană. "Lumea artei pierde o personalitate de exceptie, autentica, care si-a asumat un destin cultural local si a marcat istoria unei institutii." (mnac) Amicilor le vor lipsi mult, inclusiv în plan uman, întâlnirile cu personalitatea și farmecul deosebit (nespecific contemporaneității) al dlui Oroveanu! Odihnească-se în pace!
