Fine Art / Folk Art: A Dialogue examines the profound influence of Ukrainian folk art on the fine art created by some of Ukraine's best known and highly regarded artists. The exhibition – the first to draw on the Museum's fine art and folk art collections simultaneously – includes 70 paintings, sculptures, watercolors, and woodcuts by such prominent artists as Alexander Archipenko, Jacques Hnizdovsky, Oleksa Hryshchenko (Alexis Gritchenko), Vasyl H. Krychevsky, and Oleksa Novakivsky, along with a selection of folk art items: embroidered shirts, plakhty (wraparound skirts), complete folk costumes, a traditional headdress, a kilim, and an assortment of ceramic and carved-wood pieces and pysanky (Ukrainian Easter eggs).

About the Museum
The Ukrainian Museum was founded in 1976 by the Ukrainian National Women's League of America as a showcase for Ukrainian culture. Over the past 32 years, the Museum has amassed extensive collections of folk art, fine art, and archival material. It mounts several exhibitions annually; publishes accompanying bilingual catalogues; organizes courses, workshops, and other educational programs; and hosts a variety of public events. In April 2005 the Museum moved into a new, state-of-the-art facility in New York's East Village, funded entirely by the Ukrainian American community.
