To mark the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor, 1932-1933 famine-genocide in Soviet Ukraine, artist Lesia Maruschak will offer a public talk about her ongoing exploration of memory surrounding this historic event, titled Project MARIA; The project has been hailed by the National Holodomor Genocide Museum (Kyiv, Ukraine) as one of the most important visual arts exhibitions addressing the famine-genocide in Soviet Ukraine. 

In addition to a talk by Maruschak, the evening will include a community bookmaking activity for visitors entitled, "When a Book Holds Your Memories". Visitors will become participants in Project Maria by creating their own “containers for memories” that will eventually become Maruschak’s larger body of work on famine and genocide.

No experience required and all ages are welcome to participate in this event.
