We invite children to participate in the International Art Contest “Space Junk Problem”!
The Children’s Center “Strekoza” (Ryazan) and the project City of the Future, together with the Art Gallery-studio Valeria ArtLab (Tyler, Texas, USA) and the cultural project “Russians For Americans” hold a children art contest “Space Junk Problem”. The competition is dedicated to the 160th anniversary of K.E. Tsiolkovsky. Children from any country up to 15 years of age can participate.
Art Contest “Space Junk Problem” is also dedicated to the strengthening of Russian-American relations, and takes place within the framework of the Russian project The City of the Future and the Russians For Americans. The task of the contest is to unite in effort to strengthen relations between our countries by involving children from both countries in the artistic process, giving them the opportunity to fantasize, express themselves artistically and participate in solving common problems while drawing public attention to the problem. Everyone knows that Russia and America are countries that have made a huge contribution to the exploration and development of outer space, and the 160th anniversary of the birth of K. Tsiolkovsky, whose contribution gave a powerful leap in the understanding of space, served as an idea for the creation of this contest. Tsiolkovsky was born in the Ryazan region and gave a lot of time to his studies in Ryazan, so it was the city of Ryazan that served as the starting point for the beginning of our international children’s art competition. The first wave of the contest was already started in the spring of 2017 in Ryazan under the wing of the project “The City of the Future”, in the Children’s Center “Strekoza”, where the drawings of Ryazan schoolchildren were shown. The project is gaining momentum, showing interest and relevance of the topic, and continues now as the second wave in the US, where, with an increasing number of participants, children’s works from all over the world will be shown in the gallery-studio Valeria ArtLab within 2 months, then the exposition will go to Russia, Ryazan, and will be available to a wide audience for the show in the children’s center “Strekoza”.
