Profile

The Ukrainian Museum is a modest institution with grand ambitions—at least one of which culminated in  2005, when the museum moved into a handsome, close-to-$9 million, three-story home which its Board of Trustees built from scratch. An unabashed ethnic-community-directed institution, the Ukrainian Museum exhorts visitors to "Learn about your Ukrainian roots!" It helps that it remains located in the heart of Little Ukraine, New York's densest concentration of first-, second-, and third-generation Ukrainians. Lots of locals—and others interested in a country jolted into the limelight a few years back by its election scandal—have been paying visits to the temporary space, which shows a limited selection of items from a surprisingly large permanent collection of folk and fine art, and photographic and documentary materials.
