Ukrainian Canadian Archives & Museum
The Ukrainian Canadian Archives and Museum (UCAMA), initiated in 1972, is another institution with a unique bond to Kalyna Country. Currently located at 9543 - 110 Avenue in Edmonton, UCAMA houses numerous artifacts and documents from the vibrant history of Ukrainians in rural and urban Alberta. UCAMA has purchased the historic Lodge Hotel on Jasper Avenue in Edmonton to rehabilitate for a new museum. We invite your support for this important new cultural initiative which will preserve and interpret the major Ukrainian contribution to the development of Western Canada. UCAMA is honoured to be the recipient of a gift of 36 limited edition prints from the nationally acclaimed artist Peter Shostak to sell in support of their fund raising efforts for their new facility. This represents the initial installment of a pledge of $100,000 worth of prints. Most major Canadian cities have repeatedly hosted exhibitions of his work over the past several years. This is an excellent opportunity to support UCAMA while purchasing the artwork of a major Ukrainian Canadian artist.
