Power of Message in Russian Art

Thursday, March 4, 2004 - Saturday, May 15, 2004

This exhibition explores various aspects of Russian realist painting and its application as a medium of social communications to the citizens of the Soviet Union.  In practical terms, the Soviet government structured the educational system to produce two generations of Russian artists whose creativity was directed to producing representational paintings that would memorialize, inspire and motivate Soviet citizenry.

A brochure for this exhibition was produced and is archived.
