In light of recent events, Lighthouse Immersive has decided to expedite their IMMERSIVE SHEVCHENKO: SOUL OF UKRAINE exhibit, celebrating the work of Ukrainian artist, poet, philosopher and public figure Taras Shevchenko. Above this, proceeds will be going to Canadian Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations working in Ukraine that ticket buyers may select when they purchase their ticket. The Exhibit arrives March 15, 2022 in Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and Boston.
In 2021, Ukrainian-born Lighthouse Immersive Associate Producer Valeriy Kostyuk, working with a Ukraine-based team including Producer Natalia Delieva, Creative Director Tais Poda, Composer Timur Polyansky, and Curator-Consultant Dmytro Stus, developed and launched an immersive exhibit of Shvenchenko’s work in Odesa as part of the 30th anniversary celebration of Ukrainian independence. Kostyuk sought to apply the artistry and innovation that Lighthouse Immersive practiced with Vincent Van Gogh to one of Ukraine’s most beloved cultural figures. He was able to work with the National Museum of Taras Shevchenko in Kyiv to obtain access to their collection of paintings, resulting in a one-of-a-kind sensory experience that President Zelensky himself visited before the war began. Now, Lighthouse Immersive is working with the Ukrainian producers in Kyiv and Odesa to bring the exhibit to North America so they can share Ukrainian art and culture with audiences abroad while raising funds for an urgent cause.
