Matryoshka Doll Exhibit

Museum of Russian Art Exhibit
Matryoshka: The Russian Nesting Doll at TMORA

I have a somewhat mild obsession with Matryoshka dolls. It all stems from my Babcia (polish for grandma); both the heritage part and the fact that she loved dolls (of any kind). Last year, my husband surprised me with the proposition of a date night going to see this Russian Nesting Doll exhibit. I’m sad to say we have not yet gone, and we only have until March 29th to see it. So I’m hoping to sneak some time in.

Here’s the info, if you’re interested in checking them out:
Fireside Gallery, TMORA
General Admission $7
Exhibit ends on March 29th, 2010
“TMORA’s newest original exhibition, Matryoshka: The Russian Nesting Doll, features Matryoshkas on loan from a private collector in San Francisco. These brightly painted wooden objects have become a symbol of Russia and Russian folk art; their bell-shaped silhouettes are familiar to the young and old. Whether depicting ancient legends, religious themes, or political caricatures, Matryoshkas can tell us more than meets the eye–as one doll opens to reveal the next one inside–about the history of Russia. ” Click here for hours/location/more info.
