Uzhgorod government ignores ministerial orders
Pursuant to the Order of the Minister of Culture, in October 2013 it is planned to hold several events dedicated to the anniversary of the birth of the famous Transcarpathian artist, sculptor Basil Svyda.
Preliminary arrangements to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the sculptor were made with the city authorities, since Vasyl Svyda long lived and worked in Uzhgorod, the press center of the RSA with reference to the artist's son, Yaroslav Svyda, reported. Thus, the city officials were supposed to undertake organizational issues and financial costs. But, since members of the city government have failed to accomplish any of the points of the plan, the management of the region had to intervene in the process.
Yesterday, September 20, the regional administration held a meeting concerning the celebration of the 100th anniversary in the region. The meeting was attended by the Deputy Chairman of the Regional Council Andriy Serbaylo, representatives of artistic circles, heads of relevant departments of the regional state administration.
The Department of Culture was instructed to solve tasks in several steps. Thus, currently the making of the album of sculptor's works is at the final stage - the money will be allocated under regional program of book publishing. The plaque will also have to be made at the expense of the regional funds. The preliminary cost of the bronze commemorative plaque is quite hefty - 70,000 UAH. Also they talk about renaming of a street in the regional center in honor of Vasyl Svyda and the arrangement of the museum with the artist's works.
