On September 29, the results were announced for the national open competition for the best architectural/sculptural version for a Galina Vishnevskaya monument, held at the exhibition hall of Central House of Architecture in Moscow. The competition commemorated the 90th anniversary of the world-famous opera singer. The event was orchestrated and inspired by the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Singing Center and personally by its art director Olga Rostropovich.
All the competing works were exhibited at the CHA central hall. Additional illumination of the projects employed IntiLINE linear LED luminaires installed on support arms mounted on column pillars. The author of the idea, Natalya Shalneva, intended to use the contrast achieved by neutral lumen of the spotlights against the primary warm illumination to accentuate attention on the works and emphasize the hall's central part.

 

 

The winner of the competition, the people's artist of Russia A. Y. Rukavishnikov, previously erected the monument to M. L. Rostropovich. "He managed to create a musical image out of marble and metal" - said Olga Rostropovich in an interview on Kultura TV channel. The project is a full-length portrayal of Galina Vishnevskaya in a concert dress and mantle, standing on a tall carved pedestal.
The monument is planned to be installed near the Opera Singing Center at Ostozhenka 25. This place is inseparably connected to the memory of the eminent figure of the Russian culture and world opera scene who lived and worked there during the latter years of her life.
