Volya, or “freedom” in English, is a silent auction and cultural exhibition to raise awareness and aid for the Ukrainian people through a collaboration with an Austin-based Ukrainian coalition. The event consists of two parts: a silent auction inside the gallery featuring over 50 artists from Texas and beyond, and a Ukrainian Culture Exhibition presenting traditional Ukrainian clothing, textiles, art, protest posters, jewelry, and other cultural artifacts in the gallery and surrounding grounds. The exhibition will be activated by Ukrainian artist-led art and craft activities.

Austin-based Ukrainian artists will lead pysanky (traditional egg painting) and motanky (traditional doll making) workshops for visitors of all ages. The silent auction will feature over 50 artists and bidding takes place online from May 11 at 12 pm (CST) through May 14 at 9 pm (CST). A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Voices of Children, and Revived Soldiers Ukraine.
