14- CAPE GAZETPE, Friday, OCtober 31- November 6, 1997 Exhibit Continued from page 10 than 400 objects will travel to the United States to tell audiences about this unique period in world history that played such a signifi- cant role in shaping the world as we know it today. These pieces will depict the historical, social, religious and artistic aspects of the lives of the last imperial family of the Romanov Dynasty that ruled Russia for 300 years. " 'Nicholas and Alexandra' pre- sents the final chapter of Tsarist Russia as never before told," said Piotrovski. "Through a magnifi- cent presentation designed by our team of curators and the profes- sional staff of Broughton Interna- tional, we have the unique oppor- tunity to tell this story in an un- precedented manner." According to Piotrovski, most of the objects have never left Rus- sia before and many are coming from archives only recently made available for the touring exhibi- tion. Significant objects within the exhibition include a gilded state carriage; one of the era's most comprehensive collections of costumes, including elegant court gowns and military uni- forms; icons, chalices, mitres and vestments of the Russian Ortho- dox Church; and personal gifts from Nicholas to Alexandra, in- cluding a magnificent grand pi- ano. Also within the collection will be a number of decorative pieces designed by the famed Karl Fabergr, including the miniature copy of the imperial regalia made for the World Exposition of 1900 in Paris. The exhibition is one of the largest collections of the impe- rial family treasures ever to the leave the State Hermitage Muse- um. The opening of the 'Nicholas new Delaware Grand Exhibition Hall on Aug. 1, 1998, will be an important benchmark for the state of Delaware as it unveils its new development along the riverfront in downtown Wilmington. As the major component within the new development, the exhibition hall is scheduled to host the international cultural exchange program of Broughton Masterpiece Presenta- tions over the next five years. "In recent months, we've made tremendous strides in our efforts to revitalize Wilmington's water- front - with a view toward making this area a world-class tourist and cultural destination. With the im- minent grand opening of the mag- nificent 'Nicholas and Alexandra' exhibition in our new exhibition hall, we'll be taking a giant step forward in making that vision a reality," said Delaware Governor Thomas R. Carper. "I offer my thanks to Dr. Mikhail Piotrovski for making this collection available to resi- dents and visitors alike. I am cer- tain that this exhibition will be a smashing success." Heading up the state's riverfront project is Michael S. Purzycki, ex- ecutive director of the Riverfront Development Corporation of Delaware, who sees the grand ex- hibition hall as a strong anchor for the overall success of the develop- ment. "We view the international cultural series as a very important cultural, educational and econom- ic program for the entire region." he said. "The world premiere of the exhibition is an historic occa- sion of international significance for all of Delaware, and we are deeply honored to host the 'Nicholas and Alexandra' exhibi- tion from the State Hermitage Museum as our inaugural exhibi- tion on the riverfront." "I am encouraged by the great strides being made in the revital= Street. I can give you up-to-the-second information on more than 5,000 stocks. Call or stop by today for more information.

Sills Jr. "The new exhibition hall and long-term cultural program are exciting pro- jects for all of our citizens. They will indeed make Wilmington a national leader in cultural and ed- ucational endeavors." Upon closing Dec. 31, 1998, in Wilmington, the 'Nicholas and Alexandra' exhibition will travel to an additional two American cities. According to Broughton, several communities have submit- ted proposals to host the exhibi- tion; Broughton Internationai will consider inquiries from other po- tential venues through November 1997. Acknowledged today as the originator of some of the coun- try's finest international cultural exchange programs, Broughton has organized quality exhibitions that have been seen by close to 12 million people in several Ameri- can venues. Broughton Interna- tional organizes and produces ma- jor, grand-scale international art exhibitions from the world's lead- ing international art, scientific, historic and cultural institutions. The company works with cities throughout the United States to develop international cultural ex- change programs for American audiences. The Broughton Master Presen- tation international cultural ex- change series includes a number of significant outreach programs Aunt H00LY' RESTAURANT Sunday-Friday 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Sat. 7 a.m.-10 p.m. 645-7705 that are presently under develop- ment in Wilmington.
