CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Jacques Hnizdovsky: Content and Style. Evolving Perspectives
March 13 – August 28, 2016 EXTENDED!
The year 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the Ukrainian Museum, and an exhibition of the works of Jacques Hnizdovsky (1915-1985) is especially appropriate for the Museum's year-long celebration. Hnizdovsky embodies the ethos of post-World War II Ukrainian artists of the diaspora. He ranks among that generation's most distinguished and accomplished figures. And he designed the Museum's logo for its debut in 1976. Jacques Hnizdovsky: Content and Style. Evolving Perspectives is comprised of more than 100 works by Hnizdovsky, including oils, woodcuts, linocuts, ceramics, sculptures, drawings, and more.


Orest Skop: Cossack Mamai
June 12 – September 25, 2016 EXTENDED!
The mythological figure of Cossack Mamai has a very special place in the pantheon of Ukrainian folkloric and mythological images. 'Sacred warrior, warrior ancestor, hero warrior, warrior-musician and warrior-philosopher' – all these uniquely Ukrainian images have become somewhat of a calling card for Ukrainian folk art. Deeply rooted in prehistoric traditions and mythology, today Ukrainian folk artists view this character as a reflection of the most typical traits and mentality of the Ukrainian Cossack – a combination of strong warrior-defender and lyrical kobza-playing bard-musician (kobzar) with a relaxed attitude towards life. Orest Skop dedicates his collection of Cossack Mamai paintings to those who were exterminated in 1934 on an order given by Joesph Stalin – 337 kobzars, most of them blind, together with the children who acted as their seeing-eye guides, perished in the bloodbath.
