Anna Genina, curator of the festival "Friday at Pushkin":
For 5 years of existence of “Fridays at Pushkinsky”, we understood how much our project fell in love with the public: there are students who come to the museum literally every Friday, there are those who come from other cities, and everyone says that “Fridays” is the opportunity to plunge into the unique, magical atmosphere of art and music. Unique specialists - curators of exhibitions, curators of meetings, research assistants - help to look into the backstage of the museum, to see what is usually inaccessible to visitors. Thanks to “Fridays at Pushkin,” museum guests become his true friends.
