Join us for a tour of “Russian Sacred Art,” an exhibit of more than 50 19th century icons and other religious objects. The exhibition is the first presentation in North America of the artworks, coming from a remarkable private collection of 19th century icons. A distinctly realistic style of icon painting emerged during the reign of Peter the Great, whose westernizing reforms brought new art styles to Russia. Docent Ruth Ann Benson will be our guide. You’re welcome to invite guests! Admission is free for TMORA members, $8 for seniors (65+) and $10 for adults.
