Around 1980, an effort began to erect a monument to Metropolitan Vasyl' Lypkivs'kyi, the spiritual leader of the 1921 Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church. The Ukrainian sculptor Petro Kapschutschenko was chosen to design the monument. In the course of his work, he created numerous small terra cotta studies that document his artistic choices and thought process.
Stories from Storage
Not even the biggest museums can put all of their collections on display at once. The UHEC's currently very limited gallery space makes this challenge even more extreme. The situation is even worse for archives, which can easily have millions of individual documents in their repository.
In "Stories from Storage", we show how individual museum items or archival documents held by the UHEC can illuminate the history, culture, art, and religious beliefs of Ukrainians in Ukraine and the diaspora. We will continue to add blog post content, as well as video podcasts and other media, in the coming months.
