Yevgeny Yevtushenko in Oklahoma

ROMP is honored to have received some items on loan from Yevgeny Yevtushenko’s family for a small exhibit on the great poet. The exhibit was christened on April 15, 2023, at Wonder City Wordfest, where Yevtushenko’s son Zhenya Yevtushenko spoke about his father’s legacy and his poetry.

The exhibit includes signed posters, books, memorabilia, his writing chair and a unique patterned shirt that he loved to wear. The exhibit is on permanent display in the foyer of the museum.
