Weekday Sketchers at Ukrainian Institute

Ukrainian Institute of America

How often have you walked by one of those beautiful  mansions on the Upper East Side and thought...."Oooh, wouldn't it be nice to see what is inside?  

Well this is your chance!

Thanks for Claudia Schellenberg for making arrangement for us to visit the Ukrainian Institute on the corner of 5th Avenue and 79th Street.  Once owned by the oil industrialist Henry Sinclair and then the last remaining direct descendent of Governor Peter Stuyvesant, the building is one of the remaining mansions built  during the Gilded Age in the late 19th century. It is now owned by the Ukrainian Institute which is  dedicated to preserving Ukrainian culture in art, music, literature and customs.
