In detail:
The purpose of the Art Geography of Russia is to familiarize russian and foreign audiences with the amazing diversity of the culture of the Russian Federation through the visualization of ethnic, cultural, architectural and landscape features in art. The project is aimed at actively involving citizens who create author 's content in the active popularization of the history of Russia, because, as is known, "people of brush and pen" have special power and influence on public consciousness.
The problem local history science is to illustrate figures, numbers, historical facts and greatness of achievements of people living in this territory, how to interest a wide audience to study their history, what understandable modern forms and ways to convey historical facts to future generations, how to make this transmission bright, memorable, covering a large audience and prolonged in time.
We chose the optimal way from our point of view to draw the attention of a modern citizen to his history and invited the audience of creative people not only to present their works at the exhibition and to publish in the book, but also to create small essays on each work, including historical and local history information about the event or architectural structure or landscape, which is drawn by the artist.

In order to participate in the project, the handler needs to find such locations, which reflect the unique ethno-cultural or geographical peculiarities of the region, to turn to sources of historical and local history information, and to form an essay, in which a brief analysis will be carried out and historical parallels with modernity will be built.
The final part of the project will be the publication of artistic works and historical and local history essays in the 85-volume edition - illustrated encyclopedia "Art-Geography of Russia," as well as the presentation of each volume at the level of the region - in the exhibition or museum space of one of the 85 subjects of the Russian Federation.
The project will present a multifaceted section of the modern multinational life of Russia, in all its diversity, wealth and splendour of the national colour.
Significance of the project: the project contributes to an increase in interest in Russian history, national cultures, the tourist attractiveness of the regions and the greatness of Russia as a whole.
The encyclopedia "Art Geography of Russia: Illustrated Encyclopedia of Russia's Magnificence" will be sent to the system of Russian libraries and will be available to the widest possible audience of readers.

Illustrated Encyclopedia "Art-Geography of Russia"

Illustrated Encyclopedia and Local History Project "Art-Geography of Russia"
catalogThe goal of the "Art-Geography of Russia" project is to publish an 85-volume illustrated Russian encyclopedia. Each volume is dedicated to one province, republic, region or district. The encyclopedia includes works of art that visualize the cultural heritage of the region - its historical events, significant achievements, originality of lifestyle and the unique beauty of nature and architecture. Each illustration is accompanied by a local history reference, which will allow readers from other regions and foreign countries to become more familiar with the multifaceted culture and great history of peoples living in the Russian Federation.

For the organizers, important tasks are to revive the interest of the general public in the country's unique cultural heritage, to show the amazing diversity and richness of the spiritual and material values of each individual region, to invite people to explore their native area from a different angle, relive significant events and historical moments.
Art Geography of Russia is a call to modern art to preserve for future generations the rapidly outgoing historical nature, to reveal, along with aesthetic beauty, the cultural and historical value of both famous and little-known, unexpected and non-obvious corners of Russia.

In 2019, a pilot project "Art-Geography of Moscow" was held, which became the winner of the Grants Competition of the Moscow Mayor for socially oriented NGOs, held by the Committee of Public Relations and Youth Policy of Moscow. The project was supported by the Mayor of Moscow and the Russian Academy of Arts. More than 5,000 people took part in the competition for the opportunity to publish their works in the catalog. The result of the great work on collection of local history information and illustrations was the release of a gift catalogue-encyclopedia in hard binding.

Based on the results of the project "Art-Geography of Moscow," the Russian branch of the World Arts Fund, with the support of the Russian Academy of Arts and the Eurasian Art Union, decided to expand the project to the scale of all Russia and create an illustrated encyclopedia of large and small regions of the whole country in 85 volumes, in which all subjects of the Russian Federation will be fully represented.
The project involves works:
• Painting
• Graphics
• Photography
• Sculpture
• Arts and crafts
We are collecting artworks related to every region. The best works form a volume of encyclopedia and exhibition collection, which will first be presented to a wide audience in the walls of the local museum or exhibition hall, and then - as a mobile exhibition - in museum and exhibition sites of other regions of the Russian Federation.
The collection of materials for the illustrated encyclopedia Art Geography of Russia in 85 volumes began in 2019. We plan to complete this huge local history work by 2021 with the release of all 85 volumes.
The full collection of the illustrated encyclopedia "Art-Geography of Russia" of 85 volumes is scheduled for completion in 2021.
The organizers express hope that the project will not only preserve the magnificent works of artists for future generations, masters and photographers, but will serve as a kind of trigger for a wide passion for the historical past, will help to develop a more careful attitude to the issues of modern urban planning and preservation of cultural heritage.
We invite all interested people to participate in this project and/or provide assistance.
