The eleventh issue of Matica magazine in 2012 came off the presses in mid November, as usual featuring an abundance of fascinating articles from the homeland and abroad. The cover photo features Ivan Lacković’s painting Velika jesen (Big Autumn) from the article on the sixtieth anniversary of the Croatian Museum of Naïve Art in Zagreb. Also in the latest issue of Matica magazine read all about the latest volume in the Distinguished Croatian Scientists in the World series, the celebration of Croatian Community Day in Serbia, the continuing emigration trend in Croatia and the 100th anniversary of the Croatian Home in Farell (USA).
