The concept of the Ethnic Heritage Rooms at Wayne State University was introduced in the early 1970's, in order to showcase
the culture, art, and historical artifacts of the diverse nations represented in the Greater Detroit community. A committed group of Ukrainian-Americans raised funds for the Ukrainian Room, which was dedicated on September 24, 1976.
In 1999, the Ukrainian Graduates of Detroit and Windsor, an organization which had been founded at Wayne State in 1939, undertook the task of not only renovating the original room, but also enhancing it substantially with additional artwork and historical information. The project was completed successfully with the support of the Ukrainian community, and the formal dedication of the restored Ukrainian Heritage Room took place on May 4, 2003.
The artwork in this room is the product
of the creative talents of
Edward Kozak, George Kozak, Jerome
Kozak, and Volodymyr Mayorchak.
The Ukrainian Room is located in Manoogian Hall on the campus
of Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.
It is in use as a classroom.
