HISTORY IN PROJECTS
In November 2009 the cultural centre DIM Master Klass joined the Charitable Foundation "Kyiv Landscape Initiative" which came up with the idea of of the Children's Landscape Park on Peizazhna Alley. As well as the construction of the Playground of Riddles, developed and embodied by the Kyiv artists was initiated by Master Klass.
Famous Peizazhna Alley, located in the historical area of Kyiv ( the Upper City), has become a symbol of the Kyivites' struggle against illegal real estate developers. Due to the efforts of the society and DOM MK, in November 2009 the Children's Landscape Park – the public garden with lovely animal sculptures instead of skyscrapers , appeared.
In 2010, a mysterious Playground of Riddles with amazing fairy-tale characters created for the little Kyivites appeared on Peizazhna Alley as a result of DIM MK efforts. The playground has become a recreation area. Each of the characters is an illustration of a Ukrainian fairy tale or a riddle.
The sculptor of the project was Kostiantyn Skretutskyi, and Lesia Kara-Kotsia was the artist who painted the wall in front of the playground with characters of tongue twisters and riddles.
We wanted to remind and show all the Kyivites that the well-being of our city is a mutual effort. The development of Peizazhna Alley and the refinement of this historic district and other districts of the city is a common concern.
Among the project authors are our friends: artist Lesia Kara-Kotsia, sculptor Kostiantyn Skretutskyi, and public figure, initiator of the creation of the Landscape Park Volodymyr Kolinko.
