To preserve and perpetuate Ukrainian culture and arts within the local community and to encourage interest, appreciation and participation in these arts by the community at large. 

One goal of the Center is to establish a Ukrainian Museum to house a permanent display of artifacts and provide facilities for temporary exhibits of contemporary and traditional artists and Ukrainian folk art educational programs. 

We feature exhibits of Ukrainian art and artists, music, dance, paintings, icons, and traditional crafts, as well as offer demonstrations, lectures and performances of traditional and contemporary art.



The Ukrainian Art Center in Los Angeles has a leading role in introducing our cultural heritage to Southern CA. Thousands have attended our open houses and exhibits over the years. Even more have learned about our folk art through stories about the Center on network local television, in the Los Angeles Times, and in other major publications. 

We present exhibits of fine art by Ukrainian-Americans and artists from Ukraine; workshops on folk arts, and educational programs at libraries, schools, museums, and exhibitions. 

We also serve as an information source for cultural institutions, artists, scholars, and filmmakers. We hold two major open houses each year to showcase our art and holiday traditions. Our long-term goal is to establish the West Coast's first museum of Ukrainian art. We've already begun cataloging artifacts for that permanent collection. The Center works with other Ukrainian-American organizations in presenting cultural events, and interacts with local ethnic arts organizations, state and local government offices, and other agencies involved in supporting and enriching the multicultural diversity of Southern California. 

The activities of our non-profit organization are supported, in part, with grants from the State of California, California Arts Council Multicultural Program, and the City of Los Angeles, Cultural Affairs Department. 

A major portion of our support, however, comes from tax-deductible membership fees and donations from our supporters. And our programs depend on the hard work of our volunteers. Please help us continue and enhance our successful programs. Join us as a member and volunteer - contact us today!
