On May 20th, the Russian History Museum’s Executive Director Michael Perekrestov and Curator Nick Nicholson presented this livestream event focusing on Easter traditions and collection pieces.

This livestream chat surveyed pieces from the museum that involve a unifying theme: Eggs!

The event considered Easter traditions and symbols across mediums and timespans, from painted lacquer to glass, metal to paper, and past to present. Michael and Nick’s curated conversation also featured a substantial audience-led question and answer exchange.

The Russian History Museum is funded in part by a Humanities New York CARES Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act.
