2005-2010 New Acquisitions: Selected Paintings and Sculptures
October 2010 ‒ January 9, 2011

image

2010 marks the fifth anniversary of The Ukrainian Museumís new building. More than noting a date, the anniversary signifies a transformative moment in the Museumís history. The last five years have been the most productive and consequential in the Museumís distinguished thirty-four year existence. The expanded galleries have provided an appropriate venue for some of the Museumís most important exhibitions, which have brought international acclaim to our institution.

This exhibit is comprised of a selection from the fine art works that have been donated to the Museum's permanent collection during its first five years in the new location. The selection includes paintings by eminent artists such as Jacques Hnizdovsky, Mychajlo Moroz, and Luboslav Hutsaliuk, as well as several sculptures by the reknowned Alexander Archipenko that are on extended loan. Among the highly valued additions to the collection that are on exhibit are works by contemporary artists as well, such as a marble torso by sculptor Marta Farion and the dramatic canvas "Awakening" by Natlia Pohrebinska.

Over the last five years, the Museumís new facilities have also accommodated an expanded range of special programs, making it an important destination for visitors to experience diverse aspects of Ukrainian history and culture.

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. Since its founding, 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.
