Night of the Museums

May 20, 2013


On Friday, May 17th, I met with the graduate level playwriting students at the St. Petersburg State Theatre Academy.  The eight students with whom I met told me about their projects and challenges as playwrights.  Their stories and ideas are bravely connecting new ideas and structures with old traditions.

After an inspiring couple of hours I met with some of my fellow fellows to attend the Night of the Museums.  This is not the night when the displays in the museums miraculously come alive, rather it is a night in which most of the museums in Petersburg stay open until 6:00 a.m. and will admit visitors who have paid 350 p. (about $10) for a pass.

We found ourselves at Pushkinskaya 10, a block of artists studios and housing filled with onlookers, musicians, and some really fascinating work spanning the past several decades of St. Petersburg Art.  Here are some photos from there:
