During his all too brief life, Aleksandr Pushkin created a body of literary works of astonishing, life-affirming beauty. Deeply attached to his Russian and African roots, Pushkin's genius was devoted to the values of honor, freedom and individual dignity.
He gave his life for them. To this day, Pushkin is the Russian people's pride.

Exigi Monumentum

[Verse in Russian text: ?]

[Translation in English:]

"In years to come I'll earn my people's adoration,
For only gentle feelings my lyre did awake,
For freedom did I praise in time of tribulation
And mercy for fallen heroes' sake,"
A. S. Pushkin.

- Translated by GW Professors Jonathan Chaves and Peter Rollberg.


This statue, by Alexander Bourganov and Igor Bourganov,
was created on initiative of the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation
on the occasion of the bicentennial of Aleksandr Pushkin's birth.

Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, President
