Today, on December 4th, the International Exhibition of Calligraphy social and educational project by Sokolniki ECC celebrates its first birthday.
Millions of our compatriots have learnt about the art of calligraphy. The interest to this ancient art on the part of people appreciating their Motherland, the people and the cultural heritage was great.
Alexey Shaburov’s initiative and ability to concentrate on the tasks, well-coordinated work of the project team, support and assistance of the governmental structures and non-governmental organizations allowed the first steps to restoration of calligraphy in Russia.
The large-scale international exhibition in St. Petersburg proved Russia could launch the projects unequalled anywhere in the world.
We hope the official opening of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy will attract the attention of the federal ministries and agencies.
As for the visitors, there is no doubt there will be a lot of them.
