Closing tomorrow December 21: “Don’t Close Your Eyes.” Stop by today and tomorrow from 12 - 4 p.m. to see the exhibition featuring works by contemporary Ukrainian artists. Artists present to us their view of reality, which is necessarily different from what soldiers and other victims of war have experienced. Each artist’s perspective and method of artistic communication is unique. Each piece tells its own story. Each is an attempt by the artist to touch viewers like you, thousands of miles from where these events continue to unfold. They are asking you to stand with them. In return, they promise to stand with you.

Closing in two weeks: “Unbreakable” is now on view though December 30th.

An exhibition of Ukrainian art called "Unbreakable" demonstrates more than just the ability of Ukrainians to endure the unbearable reality during the war. Each work indirectly shows how we overcome negative bias, how we squeeze painful thoughts and experiences out of ourselves, how we educate ourselves with self-esteem, and how, despite daily tragedies, we move towards triumph, while maintaining inner peace. Since the beginning of the full scale war Ukraine has become a symbol of invincibility and the struggle for freedom for the entire civilized world.

THIS WEEKEND: Come and listen to beautiful carols sung by the St. Ignatius Choir and Orchestra, Lithuanian, Polish and Ukrainian choirs, as well be surrounded by the melodious sounds of the bandura, performed by the Chicago Bandura Ensemble. Each country has its own rich musical heritage, and hearing carols from different regions can be a gratifying way to appreciate the varied expressions of joy and devotion associated with the holiday season.

Carols convey a universal sense of wonder and awe, celebrating the birth of Christ in different cultural contexts. The power of music to transcend language and convey the spirit of the season is truly special. Enjoy the beauty of the carols and the cultural tapestry they represent! Proceeds will go to UMANA, Illinois for medical equipment to Ukraine

Tickets are $20 and will be available on Eventbrite and at the door the day of the concert.

It is with great sadness that we share news of the passing of our long time Board Member, Orest Hrynewych.

Orest and his wife Ulana were long long time members and supporters of our Institute, and Orest subsequently became a Board Member and stayed in that position for over 15 years.
He and a team of UIMA supporters were instrumental in the total re-modeling of our galleries, foyer and archives, into the beautiful building we now share with our community.

With his initiative and that of several other Board members, UIMA became the founders of an organization known as the Chicago Cultural Alliance which embraces some of the major art and cultural organizations in our city.

His enduring contributions and commitment to UIMA will remain a fitting tribute to his endeavors on behalf of UIMA.
We extend our sincerest condolences to his wife and family and wish him eternal peace.
