Visitors can see the genuine and almost unchanged creative workshop of the sculptor Pyotr Lukich Malkov (1924-2014), where the monuments of Volgograd and Volzhsky were created over 40 years. Thanks to success in the XII grant competition of the museum projects “A Changing Museum in a Changing World” of the V. Potanin Charity Fund, a workshop-museum was opened in 2016, functioning as an interactive creative platform introducing sculpture and art in general.
The exposition includes more than 100 works by P.L. Malkov, dated 1950s-2000s (easel sculptures, monumental reliefs, models of monumental works, sketches, studies, his drawings, and photographs). The arsenal of sculptor’s tools for working with stone, wood, and metal is of great value. A collection of casts of classical sculptural works from Ancient Egypt to the 18th century, vinyl records, and a library allow us to talk about what nourishes the art of sculpture. A photo laboratory with equipment from the 1940s -1980s represents one of the master’s hobbies. A collection of teaching aids for drawing and sculpting creates the prerequisites for a practical acquaintance with art. There are large pieces, tools, and works of modern artists in the small sculptural courtyard of the workshop.
