Dariya Marchenko: Art from Ammunition

Here’s the brilliant Dariya Marchenko making a humanitarian statement on the continued atrocities perpetrated by Vladimir Putin. This Reuters report should leave you provoked and moved. Daria assembles a portrait of Putin from bullet cartridges collected from the front lines of the war in Ukraine, and the art is being presented in conjunction with a novel (which I’d very much like to read).

Please share this report.

Concert for Ukraine in Chicago 

Saturday, March 28th at 7:00, my wife, Maria Storm, will be playing a benefit concert for Ukrainian relief organizations. The first half of the concert, in Chicago’s gorgeous Second Presbyterian Church, will feature classical music by Maria and New York pianist Emiko Sato. The second half will feature intense and moving performances by Constance Volk, Matthew Santos and Foma (from Ukraine). 

If you’d like to donate to this important benefit but cannot attend the concert, please log in to Facebook.com/KyivCommittee
