Description

Take a step into Ukrainian culture from the perspective of Ukrainian-Americans in Chicago. Experience day-to-day life through the elaborate costumes, tapestries, woodcarvings and decorated Easter Eggs found in a traditional home. Be transported to 1709 for the signing of the first constitution in the world in the Kozak Nation. Learn about the Holodomor Genocide of 1932-33, and the protests and war which began in 2013. Immerse yourself in displays of a wide range of Ukrainian traditions, including dance and folk art.
