The Art of Burganov: A Lasting Reminder of U.S.- Russia Friendship
By Edward Lozansky
For many open-minded Americans and Russians it has become a tradition to congratulate each other on their independence days, which are June 12 for Russia and July 4 for America.
This year we decided to note some Russian artistic works, which in the current political atmosphere might speak better than words when sending best wishes to America.
We are talking about sculptures of famous Americans located in Moscow and produced by well known Russian artist Alexander Burganov. As a side note, his sculpture of Russia’s most famous poet Alexander Pushkin is located on the campus of George Washington University, at the corner of 22nd and H streets, NW.
