Andrew Hudyma, a Ukrainian American and Millersville resident, held a ceremony on Ritchie Highway in Pasadena on September 28 to reveal the mural “Glory to Ukraine,” created by artist Michael Rosato.
The building with the mural is owned by Andrew’s wife, Yvette. Andrew commissioned the mural because he wanted to represent his culture and history.
His parents immigrated to the United States in 1950, fleeing their beloved homeland.
“I decided an outdoor work of public art could help to educate others about the historical significance of Ukraine and our proud culture,” he wrote in an email. “The 40-foot-long mural, painted by renowned artist Michael Rosato, is stunningly beautiful.”
