Polish in Utica


Polish in Utica
On October 6, 2019 the Kopernik Memorial Association hosted an Open House with new exhibits titled “Polish Folk Clothing: Pure Joy”. A parade of regional and national costumes with live models was featured. The presentation of costumes included a talk on Zofia Stryjeńska, a prominent Polish artist of the early 1920’s, whose work shows the colors, motion, and detail of the costumes. View the videos.

The Polish Cultural Center is located on the second floor of the Polish Community Home at 810 Columbia St. Utica, NY. It offers a variety of programs and activities throughout the year. Consider becoming a member. Here is the link:
