Patriotic Art Event

    On February 19-25, 2021, O.O.Osmerkin Art-Memorial Museum and Music School No. 1 named after H.H.Neuhaus held a patriotic art event dedicated to the memory of the Heaven’s Hundreds Heroes.
    Throughout the week, the museum travelling themes photo exhibition “The Revolution of Dignity. Chronicles of the Events” was displayed in the educational institution. The exhibition is dedicated to the anniversary of the tragic events on Maidan in February 2014. This is a symbolic event because the school building is located at Viktor Chmilenko Street – a hero of the events at Instytutska Street in Kyiv when tactical teams were shooting protesters. They were called Heaven Hundred. This day became game-changing in the Revolution of Dignity. That is why, every year on February 20, we remember those unbreakable people who gave their lives for freedom and the European future of our country.
    Young musicians studied the history of their country in photo chronicles with great interest. The exposition of the exhibition consists of thirty colored photos made by the famous photographers of our town, members of the National Unions of Journalists and Photo Artists of Ukraine – Oleksandr Kolominov, Ihor Demchuk, Oleksandr Shuleshko, Oleh Shramko, Yurii Lebediev, who witnessed those events and captured everything that happened during that life-changing period in Kyiv on Maidan as well as in then Kirovohrad and now Kropyvnytskyi – protests on Kirov Square which now is Heroiv Maidanu Square, the march of patriotic youth dedicated to the memory of the killed in Kyiv on Hrushevskoho Street Serhii Nahonian, the funeral of the Heaven’s Hundred Hero Viktor Chmilenko, wrecking of the memorials to communist regime personalities Lenin and Kirov and what turned their pedestals later into, anti-Russian rally, and a memorial sign on the main square of our town with the photos of the killed and flowers underneath.
    For the first time, the exhibition was displayed in one of the museum halls on February 20 in 2015, on Heaven’s Hundred Heroes Remembrance Day (according to the President Decree “On honoring the feat of the participants of the Revolution of Dignity and perpetuation of the memory of Heaven’s Hundred Heroes”). Later, the exhibition became a travelling one because the museum must preserve and bring to the present and future generations with objective information about the events in modern Ukraine. Now, the exhibition is a symbol of powerful spirit and firmness, civil courage, and self-sacrifice.
