These are exhibitions that the museum has featured.
Photography | The Paradoxical Nature of the Ukrainian Identity
Bohdanna Cherstylo & Natalia Boyko use photographs to support the thesis of their project on the paradoxical nature of the Ukrainian identity. The paradox is revealed through the stability of the Ukrainian culture rooted in the norms on gender roles and social relationships, identity with the land, and moral beliefs, and simultaneously by the detachment from the traditional past.
During the opening of the photography exhibit, the authors will discuss and present their project. Date is yet to be determined.
This exhibition is organized by Bohdanna Cherstylo and Natalia Boyko with Donna Voronovich, faculty advisor.
Project production and travel were funded by the Howes Slavic Studies Fund at Oakland University.
The opening event was on August 4th and it was on display until September 1, 2018.

The Ukrainian American Archives and Museum of Detroit invites you to learn more about this fascinating man.
To start of the exhibition Dr. Andrew Dzul will speak about noted graphic artist Olexander Kaniuka. He endured his village's sovietization, Soviet justice, years in a labor camp, a German POW camp and a true escape West. He wasn't just lucky. He survived using his wits, his courage and his art.
