Ukrainian Museum Welcomes New President

This year’s annual meeting of The Ukrainian Museum, on June 26, saw the election of a new president of the Board of Trustees, Mykola Darmochwal, and the installation of several new Board members.

As in years past, the meeting also provided attending members with a detailed description of the Museum’s activities, accomplishments, and financial status throughout the past year and into the current one, as well as a look at the Museum’s plans for the future. Members who were not able to attend the meeting will receive this information in the Annual Report (covering the years 2009-2010), which is being mailed to all Museum members.

About the Museum
The Ukrainian Museum was founded in 1976 by the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America as a showcase for Ukrainian culture. Since 1976, the Museum has amassed extensive collections of folk art, fine art, and archival material. It mounts several exhibitions annually; publishes accompanying bilingual catalogues; organizes courses, workshops, and other educational programs; and hosts a variety of public events. In April 2005 the Museum moved into a new, state-of-the-art facility in New York’s East Village, funded entirely by the Ukrainian American community.
