Also, the pupils visited the other halls of the museum, including the memorial hall dedicated to the life and work of Oleksandr Osmerkin, Professor of Painting. To get more information about the artist and the museum the participants of the event visited the museum website. They looked through the interesting sections Selected Events and Selected Exhibitions and found a lot of interesting material about the presentation of Volodymyr Krutous’s personal exhibition at his birthday to use it for a post.
