The project is implemented by the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, with the support of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine.
“Day of Unification of Ukraine is a special day in the national calendar of the country. Previously, it was the day of declaration of the 4th Universal in 1918 and then the day of the reunification of the Ukrainian National Republic and the West Ukrainian People's Republic in 1919. Since recently, this day has been associated with the tragic events of the independent Ukraine – the first heroes of the Heavenly Hundred were killed on Grushevskoho street 2 years ago. It is already the 7th exhibition, but it is especially topical, compared to the previous ones. The artists responded to the challenges of the time the Ukrainian people face now, and reflected these events in their paintings. Particularly striking is the variety of talented representatives from all regions of Ukraine,” said Ihor Likhovoy, the First Deputy Minister of Culture, at the opening ceremony.
The exposition includes around three hundred works of art from the artists, the representatives of all regions of Ukraine, as well as students of the Kyiv and Kharkiv Academies of Art.
The exhibition is open daily until February 7, 2016, except Tuesdays, from 12:00 to 19:00. Free admission.
