Retrospective: Maria "Mika" Harasowska-Daczyszyn (1911 - 2000) opens at the Ukrainian National Museum, 2249 W. Superior St., on Fri., Sept. 5, and will feature live music.

A well loved and highly collected Ukrainian artist, Maria "Mika" Harasowska-Daczyszyn’s life and creative path are deeply intertwined with her life in Chicago. Mika, as her friends and colleagues called her, immigrated to the United States from Ukraine in 1949. Her talents transcended many mediums and allowed her to leave a rich legacy of works behind.

Given her skilled use of color, she was able to capture the spirit of her country and its ethnic history. Her artwork is found in many patrons’ private collections, museums around Europe, the U.S., Canada, and also a Ukrainian art museum in Rome that was founded by Ukrainian Cardinal Patriarch Joseph Slipij.

On Oct. 23, 2000, Mika passed away in Chicago. Her life’s work became a part of the storied tradition of Ukrainian fine art. The Ukrainian National Museum’s exhibit is comprised of works from her daughter Christine Taran’s family collection.

Continuing through Sept. 28, this exhibit is sponsored by MB Financial.
