CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

FULL CIRCLE: Ukraine's Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 1917-1921
April 7 through September 29, 2019
Full Circle: Ukraines Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 19171921 commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the most dramatic and fateful periods in Ukrainian history—the struggle for independence from 1917 to 1921—and traces the creation of the modern state of Ukraine on ethnic Ukrainian territories. The exhibition showcases original artifacts generously loaned by institutions and individual collectors from Ukraine, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and the United States. The majority of the items are being exhibited for the first time. Among them are such rare items as a Zaporozhian Infantry Regiment's flag; memorabilia from key figures such as Volodymyr Vynnychenko; state papers from the UN Archives in Geneva documenting Ukraine's effort to join the League of Nations; and state seals from the period: the Ukrainian Central Council and the Great Seal of the Ukrainian National Republic.


GUARDIANS OF LIFE:
Pysanky (Easter Eggs) and Wooden Churches of Ukraine

Through October 13, 2019
The Museum's annual exhibition of pysanky, drawn from its extensive permanent collection, features a selection of large photo prints of Ukrainian wooden churches. The architectural styles are coordinated with pysanky from the corresponding regions. The show is highlighted by thematic glass paintings by Yaroslava Surmach Mills.


RE:CREATE. Christina Saj's Transformative Paintings
Through April 27, 2019
Contemporary artist Christina Saj has created an installation of paintings that act as a foundation for new artworks created by her audience. Through the addition of additional components, visitors are encouraged to add, subtract and rearrange pieces of paintings as they see fit and create their own interpretation. These can then be captured and documented as part of the exhibit. Follow our hashtag #RecreateAtUM to watch an ever-transforming portfolio of art.

 



Alexander Archipenko: Selected works
Ongoing
Influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Alexander Archipenko developed his own avant-garde sculptural style experimenting with convex/concave forms, volume/space transference, and inventing sculpto-painting. By 1920, Archipenko had become one of the most important sculptors of the era.


Traditional Ukrainian Folk Headdresses: The Borshchiv and Zalishchyky Districts
Through April 27 2019
Headdresses are an important part of Ukrainian folk costumes. Their development, establishment, and use were based on practical, functional, customary needs and requirements, esthetic tastes, and hallowed beliefs in their magical power to safeguard against evil. The headdresses in this exhibition, most of them on loan from the collection of Vasyl Nayda, are from the Borshchiv and Zalishchyky districts of western Podillia. Traditional Ukrainian Folk Headdresses: The Borshchiv and Zalishchyky Districts is comprised of wedding wreaths for brides and bridesmaids, men's headwear, married women's headwraps, as well as accessories and decorative items such as woven sashes and gerdany (seed beaded strips).
