On 23 and 24 September 2017, Moscow Glass Fest will be held for the first time in the Park of Crafts at VDNH. The programme includes an exhibition and glassware fair, a historical reconstruction "Ancient Glasswork", and many other events. The festival has a fitting musical programme — glass harp prodigy Alexander Lemeshev will perform with a string quartet and tuned bottle musician Fyodor Grigoriev.
The second season of the VDNH Summer Educational Programme has drawn to a close. Over the past three months — from 17 June to 17 September — VDNH hosted 145 lectures, workshops, creative meetings and concerts, which were visited by more than 15,000 people in total.
The "Russia – My History" Historical Park at VDNH and the Russian Geographical Society have organised "Russia Through The Camera Lens", a joint project dedicated to the study of Russia through photography. Visitors will have the chance to meet professional travel photographers from 23 September to 22 October 2017, at VDNH's Pavilion No. 57. Taking part in the project are internationally-renowned documentary photographers with experience of exploring the most beautiful and remote corners of our country – from Kamchatka to the islands of the Gulf of Finland.
