Enter a peaceful new gallery dedicated to sacred Russian Orthodox objects.

Join curator Dr. Scott Ruby as he discusses the development of the new gallery and traces the history of the Eastern Orthodox Church and Russia, how icons are used at churches and in homes, and religion in the former Soviet Union. Before the lecture you can be among the first to see the new gallery, which features rarely seen icons, liturgical vessels and vestments.

Chapter members are cordially invited to attend the opening and lecture with the Hillwood library’s compliments.
