Olena Sidlovych invited me to her office inside of an old mention known as the Ukrainian Institute of America  on the 79th street of the Fifth Avenue Museum Mile across the scenic Central Park.

The UIA’s mission at large focuses on spreading the Ukrainian traditions and keeping them alive for the New York diaspora of many Ukrainian generations by hosting various cultural events, expositions and concerts.

Today, the institute took on a critical role to spread awareness about the historical turn of events in Ukraine that turned from a peaceful protest in Kiev’s central square (Maidan) last November – to a current undeclared war on the country’s East boarder to defend the rights and freedom of citizens and county’s independence.

Expositions straight from Maidan, Kiev,  are currently housed under the ancient roof of the institute.

– “Maidan. Ukraine. Road To Freedom” – ” Paintings, posters, photography, film and music by Ukrainian artists who participated in Ukraine’s uprising against a corrupt regime.”

– “Taras Polataiko. War. 11 Portraits”- “Polataiko’s project of 11 injured Ukrainian soldiers, launched the National Art Museum of Ukraine’s fundraiser for the wounded in the war against Russian invasion.”
