Does anyone know about any upcoming Russian exhibitions to be held in the US?

I've been asked to participate in "Romanov Summer" through the Santa Fe Museum of Fine Arts. We'll be uncrating Romanov artifacts in May for exhibition in June or July through September.

Can you tell us what kind of "Romaov artifacts" you might have for the exhibition?

I wish I knew what kind of artifacts. All I know is that the exhibition is being uncrated in Santa Fe (from Tsarskoe Selo)in May - I have been invited to be there. I am told there are many pessessions that belonged to the last Imperial Family.

As part of a masterplan, a dependance of the Hermitage will be openend in Amsterdam on feb. 24th by his R.H. the Crownprince of Orange. (For public on feb. 28th).
It's the second dependance after London.

The first six exhibitions will be seated at "the Neerlandia
Building" and each one shall last for 5 months. Later this year there will be one about Nicholas and Alexandra. I'm thrilled, can't wait to see it!

As to be expected the whole Amsterdam Hermitage will be ready in 2007.  

So, if anyone of you is in the neighbourhood, come and
visit Amsterdam! Your welcome!  :D

I heard that the name of the exhibit to be held in Santa Fe is called: "Nicholas and Alexandra: at home with the last tsar and his family".
It travels to the Newark (NJ) Museum in September and then to the Cincinnati Museum Center in January 2005.
It could be curated by Marilyn P Sweezey?
It differs from the exhibit shown first in Wilmington DE by the display of extensive collections from the Alexander Palace. The exhibit held in Wilmington seemed to rely on the collections from the Hermitage or Winter Palace.
We will rely on a report from Lisa after she assists in unpacking the items for Santa Fe.

Nicholas & Alexandra: At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family will be at the Newark (NJ) Museum from
October 14, 2004 through January 9, 2005.  There is no other information on the exhibition on the museum's website.  We'll see!

Dear Anna,

Could you please inform me - or/and the forum  :) - once you know when this exhibition on Nicholas and Alexander in Amsterdam is to be opened?

As Amsterdam is not that far away, I'd really like to visit. To my utter shame I have never even been to Amsterdam yet, so this would be the opportunity!!!!

Would be really great.

Dear Silja,

Yes of course I will keep you informed. Yet,  I know very
little about any schedules of themes and dates. It was only an annoucement in the papers and tv. The only thing I know it will be late this year.

When I've found the exact website, I shall check regular and you will hear from me. Exciting isn't it?

Yes, shame on you, never been in Amsterdam!! ;)

Kind regards,

Anna

Silja

Worth knowing:

On the opening-eve (feb.24th) of the little Hermitage in Amsterdam, there will be great fireworks.

It's an reconstruction of the fireworks, offered to Tsar Peter the Great in 1697 (lived in the Netherlands for a while) by the city of Amsterdam.
