The muralist and president of the Russian Academy of Arts, Zurab Tsereteli, donated to the Russian Institute of Theatrical Art (GITIS) the sculptural composition “A Monument to Future Stars”. It was installed in the courtyard of the institute in Maly Kislovsky Lane.
“When I was in Peredelkino, in the workshop of Tsereteli, I immediately noticed this composition,” says Grigory Zaslavsky. - There were a lot of works made of scrap metal, but this one immediately sunk into my soul. Then I decided to turn to Zurab Konstantinovich with a request to donate it to GITIS and install it on the territory of the institute. He agreed. We came up with the name “Monument to Future Stars” already at GITIS - as a farewell to the guys who leave the walls of the institute and of which we are proud.
According to the rector, he wrote a letter to the sculptor with a request to transfer the work to the institute and received a positive response.
“Everything that I create, I gladly give to the people,” noted the sculptor. - When you work a lot, you create more. And if you, Grigory Anatolyevich, will come up with any other ideas, I am ready to embody them with joy. ”
The monument is a large gold star on a dark background. The sculpture was made about five years ago in the technique of punch from copper.
