”Art Life in Sergiev Posad”
It is an excursion at the temporary exhibitions of fine and decorative art presenting the Museum collections and works of artists from Sergiev Posad, Moscow and the Moscow Region. There are also traditional Spring and Autumn Salons. Opinions differ. More artists
more points of view. To see the world with the eyes of an artist is always interesting and informative. The temporary exhibitions are always accompanied by excursions for children and adults, meetings with artists and special programs.
