Cape Cod artists create auctions, events to help Ukrainian people

Telling a refugee grandmother’s story of persecution by Russian soldiers. Auctioning images of a courageous leader and a community that welcomed strangers. Sharing views of the world through young people’s eyes.

A growing number of Cape Cod and Islands artists and cultural organizations have quickly — and independently — rallied to find unusual ways their talents can make a difference to help Ukrainian people suffering because of Russia’s ongoing invasion.

Art auctions and sales, a theater show, a concert, a movie screening, exhibits, gatherings and donation pleas are among the fundraising ideas that have sprung up in recent days with the single goal of people just doing whatever they can to make a difference in the humanitarian crisis brought on by the war.

Cape Cod Museum of Art youth instructor Jennifer Stratton, left, and Winnie Brunelle look at some of the art that is in the "Through Young Eyes" exhibit which opened Wednesday. All museum admissions this weekend will be donated to Save the Children's Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund as one of several artistic efforts to help Ukrainian families.

Mobilization has been quick as locals read and watched video footage about people, including children, being hurt and killed, and millions of refugees pouring over borders. Artists and cultural officials say they have recognized that the scars of war are just beginning, and are appalled, angry and anguished by what is happening so many miles away.
