While wandering the ancient streets of the city Tver, you should visit the unique museum, where the art of ceramics “lives”. This is the “Living museum of Anatoly Kamardin”.
The “living museum” is a place, where the ceramic artist lived and worked. He made a unique ceramic panel “The festive procession” and placed it on the facade of his building. “Living museum” is a “gallery of ceramics”, “artist’s Workshop” and the house, where his family lived and continues to live. The “living museum” has always been a place of attraction for creative people. Family members preserve the atmosphere, in which the artist created his main and iconic works. It provides a unique opportunity to get acquainted with his work.
