Icon Museum Opens

A museum of Russian icons has opened in Clinton, Massachusetts, 35 miles west of Boston. It hosts the largest private collection of Russian icons in North America and its  260 icons span six centuries of Russian icon painting.

The museum is the brainchild of American businessman Gordon Lankton, 75, who is also chairman of Nypro, Inc., a Clinton-based plastics company with operations around the world, including in Russia.
