On May 30, 2015 the PCUH travelling exhibition “Money, Sovereignty and Power: The Paper Currency of Revolutionary Ukraine, 1917-1920” opened at Lethbridge’s Galt Museum and Archives. The exhibit explores the issue of Ukrainian sovereignty and the efforts at symbolic representation on paper notes produced by the various governments of Ukraine during the revolutionary period, 1917-1920.

Mr. Andrew Chernevych, chief Archivist at the Galt Museum, helped bring the exhibition to Lethbridge. “I am very pleased that we were able to host the exhibit at the Galt. When I learned that the exhibition was travelling, I thought it would be a tremendous opportunity to have it here at the museum. It fits our educational and teaching mandate. It also speaks to the complex history of Ukraine, resonating with a public that is interested in recent developments there. We are thankful to the PCUH and the Ukrainian Museum of Canada for creating and touring the exhibit, making it available to a wider viewing public.”
Curated by Prof. Bohdan Kordan, the exhibition “Money, Sovereignty and Power” will be on display in the Lower Gallery of the Galt Museum and Archives until September 27, 2015. This is the sixth venue for the exhibition, which has been travelling since September 2013. The Alberta leg of the tour is organized and supported by the Alberta Society for the Advancement of Ukrainian Studies.
