Shortly before the 60th anniversary of establishment of OJSC Irkutskenergo, EuroSibEnergo Group has published a 365-page calendar album titled “Siberian power industry in visual art” which features reproductions of paintings and drawings and photographs of sculptures and monumental art representing various stages in the history of the Siberian power industry and its current status. The calendar album contains reproductions of paintings displayed in museums in Eastern Siberia, such as the V. P. Sukhachev Irkutsk Regional Art Museum, the Bratsk municipal museum of the history of Bratskgesstroy and of the city of Bratsk, the art gallery in Ust-Ilimsk, the town museum and the art museum in Divnogorsk and the local history museum in Krasnoyarsk.

The album features works by prominent artists, such as Adolf Lokhin, member of the USSR Union of Artists and of the Creative Union of Artists of Russia, honorary associate member of the International Academy of Culture and Arts, Honored Artist of the Russian Federation; Vitaly Rogal, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation, Honored Art Worker of the Russian Federation, honorary citizen of Irkutsk; Toivo Rännäli, People’s Artist of the RSFSR, honorary member of the Russian Academy of Arts; Yury Ishkhanov, sculptor, Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Arts, professor of Krasnoyarsk State Institute of Fine Arts, member of the Union of Artists of Russia, Honored Artist of the RSFSR, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation, honorary citizen of Krasnoyarsk.

A major revolution in the power industry transformed Siberia into an industrial belt of the USSR, and art could not but reflect the changes through its medium. Artists, sculptors and monumental artists were constantly present at construction sites and depicted everyday life and day-to-day work of workers whose heroic efforts helped implement five-year industrial plans. A number of copies of the album promoting the works created by Siberian artists during the legendary times of industrialization of Siberia will be sent to museums and libraries for children and young people in Eastern Siberia.
