Here Comes the Sun

Artists support orphans in Ukraine



This exhibition features photographs of orphaned Ukrainian children and refugees by Ukrainian photographers printed on sheet metal (Yuliya Bulgakova, Andriy Dubchak, Maks Levin, Grzegorz Litynski, Rusian Lytvyn and Anatolii Stepanov), along with paintings and mixed media images of Sunflowers by Chicago area artists and young artists from the Lincoln Terrace Art Studio & Gallery in Skokie, IL.   


The Sunflower represents the global symbol of resistance, unity and hope for the Ukrainian people. 


This exhibition is sponsored in part by SPARTAN SWORD, a federal non-profit that supports the mental health and well being of veterans and first responders; and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
