Unprecedented exhibit RUSSIA! to open in New York (Pravda, September 12)
After touring a massive exhibition of Russian art, Vladimir Putin, president of Russia, expressed confidence that American visitors to the Guggenheim Museum "will feel the soul of the Russian people." If anything can represent the vastness of the steppes, it's this comprehensive show, on display until Jan. 11, 2006, exuberantly titled "Russia!"Yes, but will it allow us to see into his soul, like President Bush? No, on second thought, we don't really want to see in there, thank you very much. The Web site barely has any images, so I should really not give this exhibit any play. However, it sounds so interesting that I can't resist. Well, it's fairly likely that I will be in New York before January...
