Monument to Leonid Ivanov – both tribute and call for honour and dignity – I.Shardyko

The bronze bas-relieved monument to Leonid Ivanov, the People’s Artist of Belarus, was opened at the Paskovskoye cemetery. The author of the monument is the famous Mogilev architect Kornei Alekseyev.

According to Kornei Alekseyev who knew Leonid Ivanov rather well, the artist was extremely talented, inspired and possessed good qualities of a leader and a teacher. That’s why it was not easy to express his nature in the monument.

 The cemetery ceremony gathered a number of friends and relatives of Leonid Ivanov, representatives of local authorities, teachers and creative intelligentsia.

Larisa Nikolayevna, a widow of Leonid Ivanov, thanked everyone who helped to raise money for the monument.

At the end of the ceremony flowers were put to the monument.

In memory of L. Ivanov the Music College named after Rimsky-Korsakov gave a concert with participation of the orchestra of wind instruments “Nemiga”.
