Three hundred sculptures in the open air, 3,000 paintings in the gallery - and all of them are created with great love in the ‘Legend’ sculpture park by artists from all over the world.

All thanks to a special program that invites sculptors and artists to spend 1-2 months in an art residency at @art_penza58. Just to turn off your head and create. And, as you can see, fruitfully! To learn more about the art residency program, visit or contact Valentina Dusavitskaya (@art_penza_gallery), gallery director and curator of the program.

How to bring a sculpture to life?

🗿 You can get to Penza from Moscow by any means of transport, but we recommend by car. So you will have the opportunity to make stops to admire the vast black earth fields. And, by harvest season, the views are sure to be amazing, too!

🗿 It takes about 30-40 minutes to drive from Penza to the ‘Legend’ sculpture park.

🗿 The sculpture park itself is located on the territory of the "Art-Penza" hotel, where you can stay for a few nights... Well, or for the rest of your life, if you want. 

🗿 In the hotel you can find everything: spa, restaurant, café, even a cinema.

🗿 The Art Residence is located on the picturesque bank of the Clean Ponds. In summer, you can not only go on a plein air painting with an easel under your arm, but also take a ride on a wakeboard!🏄
