Admission is free, but those who wish to attend are asked to register through Eventbrite. The Russian Icons Museum has loaned to the Bristol Art Museum lacquer boxes that are currently on display.
“The lecture will explore the history of this art form in Russia, with a main focus on how it developed during and after the Soviet era,” shared Lecturer Garrity-Arquit. “I’ll also talk about some of the common fairy tales that are painted on the boxes and how they relate to Russian history and culture.”
