Museum educational center of All-Russian Decorative Art Museum invites to summer excursions, thematic programms and different master-classes


On the June 1st, All-Russian Decorative Art Museum hosts the special programm for children "The kind world"


We are happy to invite you to the series of creative sessions with artist and sculptor Oleg Zakomorny.
The main characters of Zakomorny’s works are animals and children. His sculptures and graphics are filled with kindness, beauty and ease. A series of animalistic artworks displayed at the museum will tell children about the amazing world of flora and fauna. The sessions will feature a tour of the author’s display where children will be able to touch any sculptures and hear a captivating story about nature, animals and birds, about the kindness and the beauty of the world.


The idea of this show is to demonstrate the unity and struggle of opposites on the example of works in glass and fabric. Artists strive to express their creative plans only by aesthetical means, without any explanations, leaving it for the viewer to interpret what he or she sees.

The combination of technological experiments with such diverse in their texture materials, together with fantasies involving the motifs of water, smoke, sky, wind, sand, find their embodiment in incredible artworks of these authors. The colorful art objects – harmonious textile sculptures and mosaics by Natalia Muradova – reveal Russian landscapes, exotic parks and nature in blossom. Timur Sazhin and Lidia Fomina use glass casting to create monumental glass reliefs and sculptures on diverse subject matter, including nature, music, stories from the Bible.

Initially, Moscovia was the name of the territory within the boundaries of the Grand Principality of Moscow. Today the territory around the Russian capital is a separate administrative  subdivision of the country geographically, but the conceptual and actual borders of this region lie far beyond the boundaries of Moscow Oblast. This territory has its own specific sociocultural, ethnographic, anthropological and spiritual energy identity. The processes of urbanization and the expansion of Moscow borders with the emergence of the new Moscow influences greater and greater territories and forces the existing traditions and crafts to meet the demands of the center. The residents of the capital and of the region mix every day as they migrate between the urban and the suburban environment, transforming the city into suburban areas and and vice versa, building the unique visual traits of the present day Moscovia: deserted industrial zones, closed cities, urban metropolitan style development with new housing and trade districts, surviving landmarks and folk crafts, huge summer cottage developments.
