The focus was on sculptures made of welded iron - the technique in which Kulich achieved exceptional filigree mastery. The core of the exhibition consisted of sculptures and medals of personalities of our cultural history from the most ancient times to more recent writers, essayists and poets: Thessaloniki Brothers, Matej Bel, Anton Bernolák, Matej Hrebenda, Milo Urban, Milan Rúfus, Martin Kukučín, Andrej Sládkovič, together with his Marína and Detvan... and many others. Drawings sketched in the amphitheater during the folklore festivals in Detva in the years 1967-1980 were also exhibited as well as the never before exposed set of 31 bronze reliefs Wedding Traditions (Svadbenie), created by Ján Kulich in the years 1982 to 1991.
Each exhibition includes short digital miniatures completed with music: a short testimony to the creation of the Instrumentum Excellens – the folk instrument makers‘ competition and Ján Kulich's contribution to the creation and course of this competition, the Wedding Traditions (Svadbenie) miniature - presentation of reliefs in accordance with the music of Svetozár Stračina and The Birth of a Statue – the timelapse photodocument about the origin of the equestrian statue of King Svätopluk with soundtrack music by Vladimír Godár.
