SRAS Publishes Catalogue of Student Art Work

A free pdf catalogue of student art
from the 2012 session of Art and
Museums in Russia
is now available

for free download.

Students on SRAS’s 2012 Art & Museums in Russia program banded together as a collective to make a catalogue of their accomplishments and experiences while abroad. The actual catalogue was designed by SRAS student Anne LeFond with text and pictures contributed from all students. SRAS was so impressed with the finished product that we agreed to publish it for them.

Copies will be sent to the students, to approximately 500 art departments across North America, and displayed at conferences that SRAS attends in the near future. The full catalogue is available for free download (in PDF, 850kb). Anyone who would like to request a print copy, we have limited extras to share with anyone within North America. Just send your name, address, and a short message letting us know that you’d like a copy via email. We’ll be happy to hear from you!

Our students' art was also shown at The Hermitage Youth Center. Find out more about that here.


Introduction from Dr. Elena Varshavskaya, curator of the program “Art & Museums in Russia

The current publication celebrates the creative achievement of art students – participants of the summer program “Arts and Museums in Russia,” offered by The School of Russian and Asian Studies (SRAS) and hosted by the Youth Educational Center of the State Hermitage Museum (Hermitage Youth Center) in St. Petersburg, Russia. The catalogue of the student final show that you are holding in your hands reflects every participant’s accomplishments and their fondest memories.

This group of international students – like their predecessors during eight consecutive summers past – came to St. Petersburg to partake in an academic and artistic learning experience of vast scope and immense intensity. For three weeks in June – July from morning till night with hardly a respite, they were visiting artistic sites, exploring them, listening  to specialists, getting instruction from artists, but, first and foremost, they were looking, seeing, absorbing and producing art of their own.

It was a real immersion into the element of art – into its history, its living artistic process and into the participant’s personal creativity. There is little doubt that all members of this group will remember those twenty days as some of the most joyful and fulfilling in their lives. Can you feel their jubilant vibe? It is there!
