Ukrainian Sacred Icons at the Museum of Biblical Art in New York City!
June 18 - September 12, 2010
This exhibition from the collection of the oldest monastery in Ukraine, the Kyiv-Pecherska Lavra (or Monastery of the Caves) will survey the history of Ukrainian icons and their stylistic evolution over the centuries. Ukrainian icons incorporated noted influences from western art, particularly during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The blending of East and West in their iconography and style is unique and needs to be better known in the US. Alongside icons the exhibition will display textiles, ceremonial and altar crosses, chalices and other liturgical objects. MOBIA will be the first venue in the United States.
Museum Located at 1865 Broadway at 61st Street; New York, NY 10023-7505
