27 October 2020

Exhibition «Memory of Generations.The Great Patriotic War in Visual Arts» will continue until the end of the year. The multimedia exposition opened in early September for two months. But due to the increased interest in the exhibition in the center "Russia is my history", it was decided to extend it until December 30, 2020.

During the work of «Memory of generations» about 8 thousand people visited it, most of them - schoolchildren. «The exhibition opened in the year of Memory and Glory and is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the great Victory. We expected a lot of interest in it. Following the new safety standard, we try to conduct tours in such a way as to protect visitors from contact with each other as much as possible. Currently, we have registered a large number of applications to visit the exhibition, so it was decided to extend it for another two months» says Oleg Chernyaga, the General Director of the Museum and exhibition center.

Works of fine art, due to their emotional influence, contribute to the better assimilation of knowledge about a historical event through experiences, which is especially important for children and adolescents, because at this age the spiritual qualities of a person are formed.

The exhibition presents more than 200 paintings by Russian artists of the 20th century from 45 museums in Russia. The exhibition acquaints visitors to the works of famous Soviet artists and sculptors: A. Deineka, P. Korin, A. Plastov, P. Konchalovsky, Kukryniksy, Y.Pimenov, V. Mukhina, E. Vuchetich, A. Samohvalov, R. Falk, A. Laktionov, V. Yakovlev, I. Glazunov, and others.

Young visitors say this about the exhibition: «It's a bit scary, but it needs to be seen so that the war doesn't happen again, and so that people can protect their country if they need to.» People of the older generation see at the exhibition their favorite works of art, familiar to them from childhood. Veterans remember how they fought for their Homeland, as if returning to the days long gone. The exhibition unites generations, preserving the memory of the heroic feat of their ancestors.

The multimedia exhibition is located in the «20th century hall». You may find detailed information on the website myhistorypark.ru.
