It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Vera Chreptowsky, friend, benefactor, avid art collector and longtime chairman of the Board of Directors. As one of the founders, Mrs. Chreptowsky with her husband Dr. Achille were instrumental in establishing the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, giving Ukrainian artists a forum for creativity and experimentation in a space that remains the premiere venue for the study of Ukrainian art outside Ukraine. The vision shared by Mrs. Chreptowsky has impacted the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art to become a sought after venue for art exhibitions, literary events, film screenings, musical concerts and as a highly regarded institution in the community and in Chicago. The Board of Directors and members of UIMA extend their sincere condolences to the family during this difficult time.
