THE NIKOLA-LENIVETS ART PARK COLLECTION
This section describes how the collection originated, what it includes and information on each art piece.
More than 30 works of contemporary art are part of a permanent exhibition.
The first land art project in the park was created in 2000 by Nikolay Polissky together with local residents and was called Snowmen. Another object was created in 2000 - the Spasskaya Tower.

The first long-standing object and 18-meter high, The Lighthouse was created in 2004 and became a symbol of Nikola-Lenivets. It was built in three months without a single nail using only a metal frame.
More than 100 objects of contemporary art were created in the park since its founding.
Nikola-Lenivets is open for creative experiments and new pieces of art are constantly added to the collection. This is the only place in Russia, which showcases landscape installations by the best Russian and international artists. Many of the Nikola-Lenivets art objects have become iconic for modern culture. The park produces 5 to 6 objects of modern art each year.

We are glad to welcome guests who come to see art integrated into the landscape. When you come to Nikola-Lenivets you become a part of this place.
