The building is temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Be transported to the Russia of decades past. From the decadence of the Czars to the destitute communist-rule years, Russian history is filled with contradictions.
During the Bolshevik Revolution (1917-1945), a significant amount of Russian-made art was destroyed, lost, or taken from the country.
Curator Michael Reese has acquired an incredibly personal collection of Russian art from that period that he is now sharing for the first time at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio.
From decades of collecting Russian decorative arts, commissioning works from USSR artists, and exploring Russia’s vast territories, Reese takes us on a visual journey through Russian history from the time of the czars to the fall of the USSR.
The exhibition paints a clear decorative picture of what it was like to live in Russia during those tumultuous times. Featured objects tell stories of wealth and poverty, political struggle, fashion, and religion.
