Pushkarev pereulok, 5 (Пушкарев пер., д 5): Metro stop – Trubnaya
Exhibit will run through May 31st and will include master classes, lectures and video presentations by well-known and international photographic artists.
Freedom: Being Aware of the Big Picture is the third exhibit from the series, Ways to the Big Picture, a cycle of three contemporary photo-art expositions dedicated to fundamental human life questions. The goal of the series is to help the participating artists as well as those who experience the exhibits “to get the big picture”, to become more aware of their way in finding sense, spirituality and vocation in their individual lives.
Exhibit Concept: From time to time, beauty beckons us to look into the depths of ourselves making us aware of our hopes convictions and feelings. She calls us to find the most sacred in order to give adequate response to the One from whom all true beauty comes.
Beauty is a call to freedom, to a virtuous life as our fundamental option, as the Big Picture of our existence.
