Russian Exhibition In Family Unity Unity of the Nation

The Ekaterinburg Art Foundation is realizing an exhibition of Sculpture and Photography “In Family Unity – Unity of the Nation”. The exhibition project started in 2005 as expression of our civil and professional position that is aimed to promotion human values. Every sculpture work is an example of an individual plastic personification of a topic that is very closed to everyone – topic of parent’s love, respect and reverence for the elder generation and careful attitude for the children.
Exactly at the present moment the exhibition project “In Family Unity – Unity of the Nation” is gaining undeniable actuality and importance, when the governmental mothers support programs, childhood and family support programs are being realized very intensively and successively. For the time being the exhibition is being realized together with a photo exhibition “Family Album” represented by the Central Federal District Social Council.
At the present moment the exhibit display is represented by art works of sculptors and photographers from dozens of Russian and foreign cities.

During the 5 years of its existence, the exhibition was realized in 15 Russian regions (25 cities): Krasnoyarsk Krai, Kurgan, Moscow, Sverdlovsk, Tyumen and Chelyabinsk regions, Khanty-Mansiysk and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs, The Republic of Adygea, The Republic of Bashkortostan, The Republic of Dagestan, The Republic of Ingushetia, Karachay-Cherkess Republic, The Republic of North Ossetia-Alania and The Chechen Republic. The regional exhibitions became joints demonstrations where local sculptors submitted their art works.
In every city there was a questionnaire survey of the visitants held by the organizers of the exhibition. 99% of the respondents believe that the family topic is to be a topical in the modern Russian society and they would like to have a monument devoted to the Family, Parents and Children in their native cities. After realizing the exhibitions some of the represented monumental works devoted to the family values were established in several Russian cities.
Such cultural projects can solve really important problems of strengthening and saving traditional family values in the Russian society, and it means that such project can promote the development of ideology in the sphere of the monumental art.
