Remembering Luba (Update: Video Tribute, Photos Posted)
Fundraiser in memory of Luba Markewycz
Saturday, November 21, 2015
On November 21, 2015, the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art celebrated and remembered a very unique individual, Luba Markewycz. Luba has genuinely influenced the Institute with her wisdom, talent and dedication for the last 44 years, as she witnessed the Institute evolve from a compact storefront to the splendid galleries of the nationally and internationally recognized Institute. Luba was an extraordinary women – her style and love for children and young people, her creativity and belief that nothing is impossible, inspired and touched everyone.
The evening’s program included readings of Shakespeare by Bohdana Bahriy, Chopin’s Polonaise in D minor performed by Solomiya Chuyko and Nazar Karabinovych performing songs “Dyvlyush ya na nebo” and “Panis Angelicus.”
A video “Remembering Luba” created by Motria Melnyk portrayed Luba and all that was important to her.
It was a special evening dedicated to a very special individual.
