Charitable Icon Painting Plein Air «Resurrection and Ukraine»

On March 5, the second charitable icon painting plein air «Resurrection and Ukraine» commenced, organized by the Department of Sacred Art of the Lviv National Academy of Arts with the support of the Charitable Fundarion «Friends of the Lviv National Academy of Arts.»

The idea behind the plein air is to bring together alumni, professors, and students of the Academy to draw attention to events in Ukraine and support the Academy’s activities.

The plein air will take place from March 5 to March 9 at the Department of Sacred Art and in the monastery of the Basilian Sisters in the village of Berehy.

The concept of the plein air is quite broad – through the theme of the Resurrection of Christ, it aims to convey the idea of the triumph of good over evil, the idea of the Resurrection of Ukraine, which is going through the darkness of trials, and the idea of the resurrection of the righteous, martyrs, and all the saints of the Church. Among them, we include our heroes who gave their lives for the freedom of Ukraine — those who are part of the righteous of the Church of Christ and those who have become so in our hearts.
