In Barnaul students of the art school of Novoaltaysk decorated the windows of the State Art Museum of the Altaysk region with graffiti entitled "On the Path of the Olympic Flame". The artists' work was presented in Barnaul on June 13.

The drawing was done from a sketch from the thesis work of Denis Golubev, a fourth-year student in the department "Design of Architectural Space". In the graffiti, a torchbearer can be seen with the emblem of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games, the Olympic Cauldron and the mountain heights of Sochi.

The torch will cover 65,000 kilometers and will visit 83 regions of the Russian Federation. The Torch Relay will end with the lighting of the Olympic Flame in Sochi on February 7, 2014.
