The Cracow seat of the IRSA was visited by Oksana Kozynkevych, director of the Potocki Palace in Lvov, a branch of Lvov National Art Gallery, and Victor Kushnirenko, president of the Pidhirtsi Castle Foundation, which also has its seat in the Potocki Palace.

 

Józef Grabski has been invited to become a member of the Board of the Pidhirtsi foundation which has already three other members from Poland: the film director Jerzy Hoffman, the former president of the Republic of Poland Aleksander Kwaśniewski and the actor Daniel Olbrychski. During the meeting were discussed the results of the hitherto co-operation of the IRSA Foundation with its Ukrainian partners (the outdoor painting sessions in Krzemieniec [Kremenets] in 2011, and the scholarly conference entitled “The Outdoor Painting Sessions at Krzemieniec in the 1930s: Past, Present and Future”, held on 25 June 2011) and reviewed plans for co-operations in the nearest future.
