Art by Children – Inspired by Ukrainian Literature

The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art presents “Literature/ART,” a collection of some 200 works of art from Lviv, Kyiv, Poltava, Kharkiv, Donetsk and Cherkasy inspired by Ukrainian Literature. These are works of children from grades 5 through 11. The medium which they used is varied – from watercolors to pencil and ink to bold acrylics. The themes from which they based their works could be prose, poetry of music. The goal of the exhibit was to foster the passion of reading and then transform what they read into a piece of art. Their source was Ukrainian literature specifically, but the result is universal – a depiction of the word into art.

Exhibit Opens Sunday, December 11 at 2pm
