The exhibition within the framework of the art project "ART AND ART: COMBINATION OF ART AND PATRIOTISM" was solemnly opened by the Rector Oleksandr Tsuhorka.

The project was initiated and organised by the Charitable Foundation for the Protection of War Victims and the Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture.
