Moscow Metro's Mosaics Star In Performance Art Piece
In a 2am show at the Mayakovskaya station - comissioned by Stalin and opened in 1938 - "[the] stars of the evening were the mosaics in the soaring domes of the platform - a series of ovals of Soviet landmarks and heroes from the Kremlin and air force bombers to athletes and workers - the work of Alexander Deineka, one of the masters of Soviet modernism."
