Beloit College’s Wright Museum to exhibit Ukrainian ‘holodomor’ posters
Online Staff Report
BELOIT, Wis. — The Wright Museum of Art at Beloit College will exhibit a series of posters selected from the Ukrainian American Museum in Detroit from March 31 to April 6, alongside artwork from Ukrainian artists focused on the subject of Holodomor.
Holodomor, or “extermination by hunger,” was a man-made famine in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine in 1932 and 1933 that killed up to 7 million ethnic Ukrainians. The expressive artworks and the formalized posters created from this atrocity present an informative and emotional exhibition.
Graduating Beloit College Student Amanda Lawnicki organized the exhibition and chose the specific posters and artworks to be displayed. Lawnicki spent a semester abroad in Russia, and has devoted the last two years of her research to Ukrainian history, including Holodomor. Lawnicki will be on hand at the exhibition to field questions and provide a short gallery tour.
“Holodomor: Extermination by Hunger” will be one of a series of installations at the Wright Museum of Art during the week of March 31 to April 6 in conjunction with the Office of International Education.
The Wright Museum of art is a teaching museum on the campus of Beloit College. The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, and there is never a charge for admission. For more details, contact James Pearson, curator, at (608) 363-2095 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
