Exhibition of of the works of the prizewinners of the Sweet Home festival of children’s drawings
The exhibition of the works of the prizewinners of the Sweet Home festival devoted to the 10th anniversary of Gazprom was solemnly opened yesterday in the Kunsthof gallery in Berlin, Germany.
Berlin is the first European city, which hosts the Sweet Home exhibition. The drawings illustrating the kid’s understanding of a gasman profession and the role of natural gas will be demonstrated in other cities and countries – Kassel, Essen (Germany), Rome (Italy), Paris (France), Vienna (Austria) and Groningen (the Netherlands).
Exposition in Berlin was arranged under assistance from the ten-year-old partner of Gazprom – German gas company Verbundnetz Gas AG.
The opening ceremony was attended by the Deputy Chairman of the Management Committee of Gazprom Sergey Lukash and a member of the Board of Verbundnetz Gas AG professor Gerhard Wolf.
“It is meaningful that Gazprom decided to demonstrate exactly the Sweet Home exposition within the framework of the Year of Russia in Germany. Collaboration in the sphere of energy is the most important element of cooperation between our countries. Russian gas is heating homes not only in our country. It gives warmth to our European neighbors, it unites countries and nations”, stressed Sergey Lukash.
Gerhard Wolf noted that during 30 years of collaboration the relations between Gazprom and Verbundnetz Gas AG exceeded the bounds of gas business and enriched themselves naturally with cooperation in the sphere of culture. The Sweet Home exposition will be demonstrated in Berlin until January 31. Opening of the exhibition in Kassel is scheduled for February 13.
Gazprom and the International Children’s Art Gallery under support from the International Association of Cultural and Humanitarian Relations on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Gazprom arranged the all-Russian Sweet Home festival of children’s drawings.
About 30 thousand young drawers from almost half of Russian regions took part in the contest. The festival went on for half a year and was crowned with a grand exhibition in Moscow in November 2002.
