The Ukrainian Museum in New York City is marking two significant chapters in Ukraine’s modern history – 25 years since its declaration of independence in 1991 and the approaching centennial of the liberation struggle and short-lived independence in the early 20th century – with two parallel exhibitions.
In Metal, On Paper: Coins, Banknotes, and Postage Stamps of Independent Ukraine, 1991-2016 is curated by Yuri Savchuk, Ph.D., senior research associate at the Institute of History of Ukraine, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The Ukrainian Museum organized this exhibition in partnership with the National Bank of Ukraine, Ukrposhta and the Institute of History of Ukraine.
Money, Sovereignty and Power: The Paper Currency of Revolutionary Ukraine, 1917-1920 is curated by Bohdan Kordan, professor and director of the Prairie Center for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage (PCUH) at St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan. This traveling exhibition was organized by PCUH in cooperation with the Ukrainian Museum of Canada.
The exhibitions will be open to the public from September 11 through November 27.
