History Museum Welcomes Russian Art Exhibit
Harbor History Museum is excited to announce the opening of East of Moscow: Russian Art Collection from the collection of Douglas Granum, artist of The Big Catch, on March 11th. Spanning the years of 1961-2007, this exhibit will show the unique works of a range of Soviet artists from the Ural Mountains, a region located between the western Volga River and eastern Siberia in Russia.
While Soviet-era politics limited the artistic expression of those not sanctioned by the state, creativity still found a way to survive amidst repression. East of Moscow showcases the resourcefulness of artists during the Soviet area, as well as through the complex transitions of the post-Communist years. Among the standout pieces of the collection include three works by Juri Lapshin, a celebrated Russian artist. The exhibit also gives a fascinating glimpse into the travel experiences of the collector throughout the region beginning in the late 1990s.
East of Moscow opens on March 11th and runs through April 3rd. Entry to the exhibit is free for members, and complimentary with price of general museum admission for non-members.
