Sign-up begins June 3, 2020 for Newberry online seminar “St. Petersburg in the Russian Silver Age”

St. Petersburg 1905

Fontanka River (1905) by Mstislav Dobuzhinsky

Please join us online this summer as we engage in exploring the burst of creativity in visual, literary, and performing arts in fin de siècle St. Petersburg (1890-1914) against a background of social unrest, decadence, and political upheaval.

The seminar will include both presentations and group discussions. Our discussions will be supplemented by historical, visual, and critical information that I will present. During each session, we will concentrate on the lives and works of two or three major poets and artists. We will meet on five (5), consecutive Saturday mornings from 10:00 am to noon starting on July 18 and ending on August 15.

Online registration opens at 9:00 am (CT) on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. The cost for five sessions is $220.00. For more information on registration and payment, see the Newberry’s website.
