Repin’s Museum in Kharkiv Region Presents New Identity

On August 2, the artistic-memorial museum of Illia Repin located in Chuhuiv, Kharkiv region, presented its new visual image.

“Creating it, we strove to give a holistic view of our institution. Currently, all three museum’s departments depicted on the new logo operate separately, in different rooms. For now, the museum staff can only hope these cultural centers will be combined in the renovated historic building of the military settlements’ headquarters,” the museum states on its Facebook page.

“It wasn’t easy to create a new image but Yulia Olomska, a student of the Kharkiv Academy of Design and Arts, in her graduation work helped us consolidate our visions into a coherent whole. Time spent on searching, thinking, experimenting was embodied in creating a logo and corporate identity which we shared with our visitors. Since August, the museum has been recognized in a new way,” noted the museum employees.

“Repin’s Chuhuiv, Repin of Chuhuiv,” the first issue of a collection concerning the study of the interaction of Illia Repin and his homeland was presented at the event. All comers were able to be part of the friendly atmosphere of the occasion with its big speeches, humor, interesting rioters, surprises and relaxed conversations.

Visitors who own the book got an illustrated edition with the image of the unique stock artifacts of the museum which are on display for the first time.

Reference: Illia Repin, a realist painter, was born in Chuguyev, in Kharkov Governorate, Russian Empire (now Chuhuiv, Ukraine, Kharkiv Region) in 1844. The artist managed to meet the challenge of reflecting on painting all the diversity of life around him. In his work, he was able to cover all aspects of modernity, touch upon the topics that society cared about. Repin’s artistic language was characterized by plasticity, he was influenced by various stylistic trends from the Spaniards and Dutch of the XVII century to modern French Impressionists.
