Brunnier fall features Russian paintings
An exhibit of Russian Impressionist oil paintings opened Aug. 25 in the
Brunnier Art Museum, Scheman Building. The exhibit features 60 pieces from
the Museum of Russian Art, Minneapolis, and represents a period from roughly
1935 to the demise of the former Soviet Union in 1991. During that time,
much of the Soviet art was "realistic in form and socialistic in content."
A public opening reception will be held in the Brunnier Art Museum from 5:30
to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 18. Music and refreshments will be provided; a
cash bar will be available. Guests include Ray and Susan Johnson, founders
of the Museum of Russian Art. Those attending are asked to RSVP by Sept. 12
to Janet McMahon, 4-3342.
Admission to the Brunnier is free.
