  • Category:

The Lviv History of Religion Museum has accepted the exhibition "Transfiguration by the Lord's love." The opening of the exhibit will take place on Friday, November 6, 2009, at 12:00. Archbishop Ihor of Lviv, representatives of the regional Department for Execution of Punishment of the city and regional state administrations will take part in the opening of the exhibition of prisoner's art.

This exhibition, which is conducted under the patronage of the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church His Beatitude Lubomyr and organized with the assistance of the State Criminal-Executive Service of Ukraine, already prompted a number of positive reviews from the public when it was displayed in Kyiv, Donets'k, and Chernihiv.

The majority of works took part in the national selection at the international competitions that took place this year in Vienna and Berlin. We already know the names of the winners of the competition "Signs of life" in Vienna: The announcement of the results of Berlin's competition "By the eyes of others" is postponed by the Art and Prison Association until the end of November:

What is most valuable for us is the possibility which is given to all visitors to write their own review to the author of the work which they liked.

The purpose of the exhibition is to overcome alienation which arises naturally through imprisonment and to promote the process of renewing the social significance of people who had trouble with the law and were punished. It is important to widely acquaint the society with the modern criminal-executive service of Ukraine and with the service of the church for our fellow citizens who ended up behind bars.
