Lviv Art Center accepted forced migrants and provided them with psychological support in the first weeks after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Volunteers helped displaced people with food, information, settlements and relocation. Artists who were forced to leave their hometown due to the war presented their works in the Сenter.
The posters created by residents of the Lviv Municipal Art Center became an important source of information about the war in Ukraine. You can see part of this collection now at the exhibition in Reykjavík. All these artists are based in Lviv now.
