Here’s one for Tuesday Night Trivia. There is only one museum in North America devoted exclusively to the preservation and presentation of Russian art and artifacts. The Museum of Russian Art is located in Minneapolis, MN. On display until September 26 is A Homespun Life: Textiles of Old Russia. This show features everything from towels to garments produced by Russian peasant spinners, weavers and dressmakers. Click here for more details and to view a slide show of some of the featured items.
