Lovely Signs of Change
The Bulgakov Museum continues to be one of my favorite places in Kyiv. I attended a fall celebration and fundraising event last week framed around the idea of the much-loved grape vines that frame the house's veranda. What's new there? First, the idea of a fundraising event! The event attracted far more participants than the staff had anticipated and the audience was a great mix of all ages of people. You could also purchase mission-related souvenirs, so I now have my very own Bulgakov Museum magnets. Each of these efforts raised important funds for special projects.
Saint Sophia's Cathedral, a World Heritage Site, an art installation featured well-designed and produced graphic labels, in both English and Ukrainian, introducing the artist and explaining her approach to the project.
