The Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts (KIIII) is one of the most significant cultural and educational centers of the Kaluga Region. It was formed in April 2014 by the merger of the Kaluga Regional Art Museum, created in 1918, and the Regional Image Gallery "Image", opened in 1994.
The KIII collection contains about 12 thousand works of painting, graphic art, sculpture and decorative and applied art created by Russian and Western European masters of the 16th-20th centuries. The main exposition of the KIIA is located in the main house of the Bilibin-Chistokletovs estate - an architectural monument of the beginning of the 19th century (Lenin St., 104). The Ignatiev House (Lenin St., 103), built at the beginning of the 20th century, houses the Information, Education and Exhibition Center, where the Russian Museum: Virtual Branch, the first in the Kaluga region, will open.
The activity of the KIIA has always been aimed at preserving the historical and cultural heritage, introducing citizens to the best examples of domestic and world art culture. In recent years, the museum has become known in the region for its successful exhibition projects and vibrant cultural events. Art-aesthetic education is a priority of the KIIA and includes educational programs (cycles of excursions, lectures, contests, creative classes, concerts, etc.) for various age categories, in particular, for a school audience. The Magic Rainbow children’s art and aesthetic studio created at the museum operates on the basis of the Hello and Museum! Museum and educational program of the Russian Center for Museum Pedagogy and Children’s Creativity of the State Russian Museum.
The virtual branch of the Russian Museum opening on the basis of the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts will become a fundamentally new resource and educational platform in the region.
