The Tretyakov Gallery, the Institute of Russian Realistic Art (IRRI) and the Museum of the Russian Artist Anatoly Timofeevich Zverev (AZ) decided to support the worldwide event # HeartsForArt, during which from 10 to 15 February, visitors will talk about their love for paintings with paper hearts.
The project Hearts for Art (Hearts for Art) was launched five years ago at the Oakland Museum of California and the Columbus Museum of Art. Since then hundreds of museums around the world have joined them.
"We decided to support this wonderful action, because in our country so many people who are in love with art need to be given the opportunity to tell about this love. For the participants, we prepared "valentines" for a kind of inserts for chewing gum "Love is ...". I'm sure everyone will be interested to read them or come up with their own. We are glad that our friends from the Tretyakov Gallery (the action is distributed to the main exposition of the New Tretyakov Gallery) and the AZ Museum have already picked up the idea right now, "says art director of IRRI Nadezhda Stepanova.
