Odesa Art Museum opens its doors after damage and organizes festive events for children

The Odesa National Art Museum has been restored after the arrival of a rocket from the Russian occupiers on November 5. Valeriy Korshunov, coordinator of the public program of the Odesa National Art Museum, said this during a briefing at the Ukraine-Odesa Media Center.

“On December 15, our museum resumes its work – tomorrow we have an open day. During this time, after the arrival of the Russian missile, we managed to preserve the destroyed, examine the damaged works, resume exhibitions, and restore what was damaged. We are currently working on several exhibition projects. This is an exhibition by Roman and Margit Silsky, a project by Borys Eisenberg, who was killed in action near Bakhmut, and an exhibition by Volodymyr Semkiv. Tomorrow, the entrance will be free from 12.00 to 17.00,” the museum coordinator said.

Valeriy Korshunov noted that the windows in the museum are now closed, everything is safe and prepared for visitors. The museum staff has prepared a number of events for children during the New Year holidays.

“Throughout December, we hold master classes for children. These are classes on creating a theatrical costume with lectures on Ukrainian artists Petrytskyi, Arkhypenko, and Oleksandra Ekster. There is also a series called “Fantastic Beasts”. This week, we will hold a master class on making ornaments for embroidered shirts. All children’s events are free of charge, we hold them in the Odesa national scientific library nearby on Pastera Street, where there is a convenient shelter in case of air raids. There are usually 20 children in the groups, 5-8 of them are children of military personnel or IDPs,” the coordinator emphasized.
