In the penitentiary institutions of the Stavropol Territory, preparations have begun for the competition of Orthodox painting among convicts “Phenomenon”. The event was organized within the framework of the annual All-Russian review of the religious activities of convicts “Not in numbers, but in humility.”
The theme of the competition is “Alexander Nevsky: West and East, Historical Memory of the People”, associated with the 800th anniversary of the birth of Saint Prince Alexander Nevsky. In amateur art circles of correctional institutions, participants in the competition not only make reproductions of paintings by famous artists, but also come up with plots on their own.
