The only university that has so many Art Works...
Elif Tuncel, stating that they have visited every corner of our country when they had the opportunity since 2010 and made an archive of North Cyprus photos, said "Some of the frames selected from this archive are presented to art lovers. We were making a hobby while taking these photos. Today, the work of this hobby is valued, shared, exhibited, and archived for future generations. In this respect, the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts is making a great contribution to the artists, their works and the culture of the country, and is preparing an invaluable heritage for future generations. There is probably no other university in the world that hosts and exhibits so many art pieces."

Tuncel said, "An incredible collection consisting of valuable artworks was created in In such a short time. The greatest expectation of an artist is the appreciation, sharing, and transfer of his artwork to future generations.
