Decades before the Russian invasion of Ukraine last year, a brilliant creative mind from Ukraine left his homeland after being brutalized during the Nazi occupation. Now, a collection of work by the late Ukrainian-born artist George Voronovsky, “Memoryscapes,” is on view now at the High Museum of Art through August.

It’s the first time Voronovsky’s paintings and sculptures have ever been shown outside the state of Florida, where he settled in 1970.

In this interview, “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes recently spoke with the High Museum’s curator of folk and self-taught art, Katherine Jentleson, about Voronovsky’s work. 

“George Voronovsky: Memoryscapes” is on view through August, and more information about the exhibition is available here.
