)-- Exhibit - The Courageous: Our Heroes Opening/Reception - August 11, 2017 at 7:00 pm and continues through September 30, 2017.
The Ukrainian National Museum of Chicago (UNM) will open a travelling exhibition from Ukraine The Courageous: Our Heroes to mark the Independence Day of Ukraine. An unprecedented exhibition and first time collaborative project with the Heavenly Hundred Heroes – the Revolution of Dignity Museum (Maidan Museum) in Kyiv, Ukraine and support of the Consulate General of Ukraine in Chicago.
On view through September 30, 2017, the multimedia exhibition brings to life the memories of the revolutionary events, and encourages further independent exploration and interpretation of the various themes and issues arising out of Ukraine’s freedom movements of the past and its modern-day Revolution of Dignity. While the exhibition spotlights the heroism of Ukrainians in their fight for independence, it also seeks to stimulate dialogue on the concept of freedom through viewpoints on the past and the present, on different civil disobedience campaigns and self-organized pro-democracy movements related to the struggle of other nations for human rights, individual liberties, and freedom as an essential human value.
The multi-media exhibition with brief explanatory texts portrays the images of participants of Ukraine’s civil disobedience campaigns and self-organized pro-independence movements of the 20th and 21st centuries by displaying the revolutionary attire and attributes of these individuals.
Media Event: Members of the press are invited to attend a press conference and exhibit viewing of Courageous: our Heroes on Friday, August 11th, 6:00 pm. Refreshments will be served. For media access, please contact
