The Union of Bulgarian Artists is a non-profit creativity association bringing together, through its territorial network, visual artists and art critics from all over the country. Founded in 1944, the Union is in fact the result of a half-century of historical experience of Bulgarian artists in the building of an organization capable of protecting their rights and constructing the necessary cultural infrastructure warranting adequate art life.
