Exhibition: Hello from Krapivna!

__April 23 - May 28, 2017
Krapivna Local History Museum 

You are welcome to visit the Hello from Krapivna! exhibition. The visitors can enjoy drawings, photographs and postcards with views of Krapivna, and works dedicated to the stinging nettle plant  (krapiva in Russian).  At the exhibition there will also be a presentation of the “Krapivna. Retro” set of postcards published at the expense of Stanislav Ivanov, a descendant of the Krapivna merchants the Yudins. 

All the works on display were done by participants in the eponymous contest. During several days, teachers and students of the Design department of Tula State University and the Painting department of the A.S. Dargomyzhsky Tula Arts College, and Tula photographers visited Krapivna and got inspired by its views. Their aim was to create sketches for future postcards about Krapivna and the nettle. The best of the works that can be seen at the exhibition will become Krapivna‘s official post cards. According to the rules of the contest, Krapivna and the nettle can be shown either in the same postcard or separately.

By the way, one can still participate in the contest. Works (photographs, drawings or postcard layouts)  can be submitted to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it until April 20, 2017.

The exhibition will open on April 23 at 15:00. It can be visited everyday from 9:00 to 17:00. Cost of a museum ticket: 100 rubles for a full-price ticket; 50 rubles for a discounted ticket.
