Ukrainian Cultural Heritage: What's Damaged; Destroyed; Documented; and Being Done
The International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR) -- www.ifar.org -- announces a virtual IFAR Evening (in the Afternoon) on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. EDT. In addition to the tragic toll the Russian invasion of Ukraine has taken on human life, there have been significant attacks on Ukrainian cultural heritage -- its art, museums, and monuments. This important IFAR program highlights what has been damaged and destroyed; what is still at risk; and significantly, what is being done to help. Please join us for this timely program when several experts from Europe and the U.S. address these issues. The program, organized as a Zoom webinar, will include Q&A.
