Exhibition — Andy Warhol: Endangered Species

Courtesy of Ronald Feldman Gallery, New York.


The Andy Warhol: Endangered Species series from 1983 includes 10 large silkscreens: Bighorn Ram, Black Rhinoceros, Grevy's Zebra, Orangutan, San Francisco Silverspot, African Elephant, Bald Eagle, Siberian Tiger, Pine Barrens Tree Frog, and Giant Panda, as well as the 1985 screen print, Sea Turtle. An important component of the show at The Ukrainian Museum is a section dedicated to Andy Warhol's early years growing up in Pittsburgh. At the vanguard of the Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol is recognized as one of its greatest architects. But the influences from his youth, when he was immersed in the culture of his Carpatho-Rusyn origins, impacted his evolution into a world-renowned artist. This exhibition not only features the still relevant Endangered Species series, but also looks at Andy's heritage and other inspirations from his early years that spurred him along the path toward becoming one of the most influential American artists. Augmenting the Endangered Species exhibition are several early drawings by Andy Warhol, as well as a few personal artifacts and family photo prints.

Exhibition — Vertep (Ukrainian Puppet Theater) and Ukrainian Christmas Traditions

image

The Museum's Vertep, a traditional Ukrainian Christmas puppet theater, was designed by artist Slava Gerulak, who also created the puppets' ceramic heads. Yurii Kostiw built the theater structure, while members of the Ukrainian National Women's League of America (UNWLA) made the costumes. The Vertep project was produced by Branch 64 of the UNWLA. Our holiday display includes a reproduction of a woodcut by Jacques Hnizdovsky depicting the Ukrainian Christmas Eve supper (sviata vecheria), and examples of other Ukrainian Christmas traditions, including a Christmas tree with numerous hand-made ornaments.

Exhibition — Traditional Ukrainian Folk Headdresses

image

Headdresses are an important part of Ukrainian folk costumes. Their development, establishment, and use were based on practical, functional, customary needs and requirements, esthetic tastes, and hallowed beliefs in their magical power to safeguard against evil. The headdresses in this exhibition, most of them on loan from the collection of Vasyl Nayda, are from the Borshchiv and Zalishchyky districts of western Podillia. Traditional Ukrainian Folk Headdresses: The Borshchiv and Zalishchyky Districts is comprised of wedding wreaths for brides and bridesmaids, men's headwear, married women's headwraps, as well as accessories and decorative items such as woven sashes and gerdany (seed beaded strips).
