Russian Honorary Consul, CO Author, & German Russians @ Global VLG

By Leisa Taylor Outreach Coordinator May 1, 2019

Russian Retrospective, an immensely popular display at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures, will feature three final programs before closing May 25.

Russian Revelations:  Fact-Based Thinking on Diplomacy, Great Power Politics, Business, and Trade will be presented from 2-4 pm Saturday, May 11, by Dr. Deb Palmieri, Honorary Consul General of Russia in Colorado.  Based in Denver, Dr. Palmieri assumed her duties in January 2007 after being appointed the Russian Federation’s first Honorary Consul General in Colorado by then Ambassador Yuri Ushakov.  Admission to the program is $5/person and includes entry into the Museum’s four galleries.  

On Sunday, May 19, from 4-5 pm, Colorado award-winning author Chris Goff will discuss and sign copies of her newest book, Red Sky.  The thriller begins when People’s Republic Flight 91 crashes in northeastern Ukraine with a U.S. diplomatic agent on board.  Raisa Jordan, the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service Agent, is sent to investigate, and it quickly becomes apparent that the plane was intentionally downed.  The discussion and signing are free and open to the public.  

Germans from Russia – From Catherine II’s Heimat to Colorado Farms and Homes will be presented Thursday, May 23, from 5-7 pm.  Due to the sold-out program in February, this is a repeat presentation by Kenneth Rock, Professor Emeritus of History at Colorado State University, and Cheryl Glanz, board member of both the Northern Colorado and international chapters of Germans from Russia.  Admission is $5/person and includes entry into the Museum’s four galleries.

The Global Village Museum is located at 200 West Mountain Avenue.  Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 am to 5 pm.  For more information, call 970-221-4600 or visit
