Sokolski dom was established in 1922 by the Sokol gymnastic club. Later on it has served as a provisional performing arts venue, enthusiastically maintained by the Lubnik Choir. The Municipality of Škofja Loka has renovated the centre with the funds obtained from EEA Norway Grants (Lively Old Town project) and the European Fund for Regional Development.
The gallery programme in the main exhibition space kicked off with illustrations by Zvonko Čoh, followed by paintings by Jurij Kalan. The 20th anniversary of the death of Ive Šubic (1922–1989), a Partisan, local painter, graphic and illustration artist was commemorated with an exhibition of rarely seen selected drawings.
