Dreams of Ukraine is a special exhibition commemorating the 18th anniversary of the independence of Ukraine. It was shown at the Embassy of Ukraine to the U.S., Washington, DC, and will be on display for only two days at The Ukrainian Museum in New York City.


Igor Grechanyk was born in Kyiv, Ukraine in 1960. In 1978 he graduated from the Republic of Ukraine Art School and in 1984 from the Kyiv State Art Institute. He is a member of the National Artists Union of Ukraine, member of the Art of Imagination Society, London, and a leader of the "The Golden Gate" Creative Association, which was founded in 1997 in Kyiv.

Grechanyk has participated in many exhibitions and art shows internationally, and is the recipient of both Ukrainian and international awards. His works are held in private and museum collections in Ukraine and throughout the world, and were included in the international catalogue of the best artists of the world in contemporary imaginary art (Dreamscapes, Spectrum, Imaginaire). Grechanyk feels the metaphysical constituent of the spirit of humanity and incarnates it into tangible forms. The surrealism of our modern life is combined in Grechanyk's symbolic sculptures with the world of ancient myths. He is the creator of a number of monumental works. Igor Grechanyk currently resides and works in Kyiv, Ukraine.

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.
