MB Financial Bank has had a close association with Ukrainian-Americans in both Chicago, Ill., and Philadelphia, Pa., for many years. Besides helping local businesses to grow and families to prosper, MB has been a benefactor to Chicago’s Ukrainian National Museum since 2004. In addition, Irene Subota, the banking center manager of MB’s location in Ukrainian Village, 936 N. Western Ave., Chicago, Ill., 60622, serves on the museum’s board. Now MB is proud to announce its sponsorship of a special exhibit – “The Heirloom Treasures of Roxolana Skobelska Pomeroy.”
Opening on January 11 and on display through January 28, 2013, this unique collection features the work of some of Ukrainian’s most illustrious painters, illustrators, poets and writers including Mykhailo Moroz, Kornylo Ustyianowycz, Augusta Kochanowsha and Mykola Ustyianowycz.
The collection was willed to the museum by a Ukrainian-American, Roxalanda Skobelska Pomeroy (nicknamed “Roxy”) whose life was as remarkable as the masterpieces she collected. She was born in 1924 in Ukraine and her extended family included the famous poet Mykola Ustyianowycz and his son Kornylo, a leading painter of his day. Both father and son are represented in this exhibit.
