Cultural Identity to Statehood: Ukraine 1917-1921

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Ukrainian Revolution and the Ukrainian People’s Republic, this exhibition tells the story of some of the individuals who dedicated themselves to Ukrainian statehood through military action, diplomacy, education, and art. Drawing on items from the permanent collection of the Patriarch Mstyslav Museum and the Metr. Andrew Kuschak Memorial Archives at the UHEC, it will explore

  • the search by artists and designers like Heorhii Narbut and Vasyl' Krychevs'kyi for a new visual identity of Ukraine

  • the diplomatic work of Volodymyr Kedrowsky

  • the “musical diplomacy” of the Ukrainian Republic Capella under Oleksandr Koshyts’

  • the amazing depth of talent at the Ministry of Education

  • the countless soldiers who fought in the ranks of the Ukrainian armed forces, many of whom are buried in St. Andrew Cemetery in South Bound Brook.

The exhibition will be open through the Fall of 2018. Hours are 9am-5pm weekdays (except national and Orthodox religious holidays), weekends and groups by appointment. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
