Ukrainian Institute of America

Founded in 1948, The Ukrainian Institute of America promotes through educational, professional and social activities a greater appreciation of the traditional and contemporary art, literature, music, culture, history and traditions of Ukraine. It also hosts art exhibitions of notable Ukrainian artists living in the United States.

We will be welcomed by Walter G. Hoydysh, Ph.D., Director of Art, at a reception in the beautiful Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion, built in 1898. Dr. Hoydysh will give an overview of the current exhibitions: Ukrainian Socialist Realism, with portraits and group scenes of Ukrainians and their work and home lives in the post-World War II period up until the mid-1980s; Alexander Archipenko, a collection of Alexander Archipenkor’s most significant works of art; and Anastasiia Podervianska: High Textile, an exhibition of textile works by Ukrainian-born Anastasiia Podervianska. The evening concludes with a buffet supper and the MCNYC meeting.
