Plein Air art expo “On the Edge” features new work created by Internally Displaced Ukrainian Artists at UCU

Plein Air art expo

“Between yesterday and tomorrow, in a time and space that was impossible to imagine until recently: Who we are today and what the confusing world is like for us.”

The dialogue between the artist and the canvas was the theme of the “On the Edge” exhibition, which took place from April 4-11 at Ukrainian Catholic University. Organized by the SaveCultureUA volunteer association, 11 internally displaced artists were invited to participate, all of whom were forced to seek refuge in Lviv as a result of the war.

UCU invites you to tour the virtual exhibition and to learn more about each artist. Proceeds from the exhibition will go towards UCU’s support for refugee artists and cultural projects.
