Mazepa in Print
April 25 ‒ October 31, 2010

Concurrent and in conjunction with the Museum's major exhibition Ukraine-Sweden: At the Crossroads of History (XVII-XVIII Centuries) is a supplementary exhibit of approximately 150 books and other printed documents that reflect Hetman Ivan Mazepa's importance as a highly significant figure in the development of Ukrainian nation-building and culture.

Entitled Mazepa in Print, the exhibit includes publications from the Museum's library and from the libraries of the Shevchenko Scientific Society, the Ukrainian Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Ukrainian Museum and Library of Stamford (Connecticut), and the Ukrainian Educational-Cultural Center of Philadelphia, as well as private collections. Photographs are courtesy the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University.

The publications in the exhibit are arranged by category, such as Mazepa in political history; Mazepa as a military leader; and Mazepa in literature, art, music, architecture, and culture. Although the majority of the books are in Ukrainian, several are in foreign languages. Some of the earliest items on exhibit are M. Kostomarov, Mazepa i Mazepyntsi (1882); D. Bantysh-Kamenskyi, Slovar Dostopamiatnykh Liudei Ruskoi Zemli (Dictionary of Respected and Memorable Figures in Rus') (1836); V. Buzhynovskyi, Hetman Mazepa (1916); I. Borshchak, Mazepa: Liudyna i Istorychnyi Diiach (Mazepa: The Man and the History-Maker) (1933). Considering that Hetman Mazepa was not only anathematized by the Orthodox Church but also banned in the Soviet Union, the number of books about him published since Ukraine's independence is also impressive.

Mazepa in Print, which was organized by Sophia Hewryk and Natalia Sonevytsky, is on view through October 31.

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.
