From a press release:

“Meridian International Center will present The Glory of Ukraine: Sacred Images from the 11th to the 19th Centuries—a rarely seen collection of more than 70 objects including icons, liturgical objects, textiles, and rare crosses—at Meridian’s Cafritz Galleries from October 20, 2010 – January 16, 2011. Featuring some of Ukraine’s most important national treasures from the National Kyiv-Pechersk Historical and Cultural Preserve and the National Museum in Lviv named for Andrei Sheptitsky, the collection traces the evolution of Ukrainian iconography from its early Byzantine roots through the Baroque and Renaissance periods.
