The Gift of Art: A Major Gift of Arcadia Olenska-Petryshyn Paintings
December 13 ‒ August 29, 2010


The exhibition The Gift of Art: A Major Gift of Arcadia Olenska-Petryshyn Paintings puts the spotlight on Dr. Wolodymyr Petryshyn's gift to the Museum of 44 works by his late wife and recognizes her importance to the cultural life of the Ukrainian community. Nearly all the Museum's holdings of Olenska-Petryshyn's works are included in the exhibition, as well as four paintings on loan from the estate of her mother, Maria Olenska.

The Gift of Art is one in a series of exhibitions honoring the generosity of donors who have enriched the Museum's collection with substantial gifts.

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.
