The large ‘Museum Collection’ painting exhibition consists of more than 60 works, including the ones, kept in private collections, and completely new paintings by Kryvolap. One of the big events of the exhibition will be the presentation of Anatoly Kryvolap Award, founded by the artist to support talented youth. "Since the Renaissance period, art was always based on collaboration between artists and collectors. During those times, every rich man had a collection, because it was prestigious, as it is now, so far. The ‘Museum Collection’ exhibition, to some extent, was possible thanks to collectors and their attempts to merge. This year I decided to establish a prize for students of art universities. Its main purpose is to support young and emerging talents. The award will give the opportunity to go to world art capitals and visit museums, which is very useful for academic studies", - said Anatoly Kryvolap.
