Yevtushenko gives house, art to Russia
This article, which talks about the famous Russian poet's donation of his house to the nation, gives voice once more to the link I always argue for. There is poetry, there is painting and the plastic arts, and the poetic, plastic artistry of the museum. And they have a dialectic and dialogue which cannot be ignored.
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
