Now on view:

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.


While the Center's new museum building is under construction, we are presenting exhibits in the Library Gallery.

This gallery occupies the location formerly used by the UOC of USA bookstore, and has been completely refurbished for use as a gallery, including the installation of museum-grade UV absorbing film on the windows to protect the displayed artifacts from sunlight damage.

A sampling of a series of 80 linocuts by Ukrainian artist Mykola Bondarenko (b. 1949) depicting the unbelievable “menu” that survivors of the Holodomor subsisted on.


All of the post-World War II refugees who fled Ukraine in the mid 1940s ahead of the advancing Red Army had their tales of hardship and triumph. In this exhibit, we tell the stories of two similar, but at the same time very different refugee experiences.


How did a Ukrainian winter song arranged for chorus by Mykola Leontovych end up as the perennial American Christmas favorite "The Carol of the Bells"? The story involves an unlikely musical ensemble called the "Ukrainian National Chorus". Here we tell the story of the Chorus through archival materials from the collection of Fr. Mykola Kostets'kyi, who was a member of the Chorus in the 1920s.
