Shevchenko Museum, 1614 Bloor Street West (East of Keele), Toronto, ON M6P 1A7

The Taras Shevchenko Museum in Toronto has acquired a valuable collection of art from Ukraine. It consists of a total of 49 works created and donated by contemporary Ukrainian artists.  They will be exhibited in a collection called Picturesque Ukraine. These art works are part of an exhibition to be held at the museum from October 14 to December 20, 2018.

All art pieces to be displayed were originally created to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the poet's birth on March 9, 1814.

The name of the exhibition, Picturesque Ukraine, was established by the great Ukrainian poet and artist Taras Shevchenko. In 1844, he created a series of engravings which he intended to publish as a periodical under the name Picturesque Ukraine.

The exhibit will open in the museum, located at 1614 Bloor Street West, on Sunday, October 14, 2018, at 2:30 pm.  A wine and cheese reception will be held.
