BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It's almost been one year since Russia invaded Ukraine, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston opened a collaborative exhibit featuring artists and photographers that have documented the conflict so far.

The MFA's Senior Curator of Photography Kristen Gresh says the pieces in the exhibit “Who Holds Up The Sky?” are a tribute to the strength and resilience of Ukrainians.

The exhibit comes as a collaboration between the MFA and the Wartime Art Archive which is located at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Ukraine.

"This is absolutely a symbol and representation of that resilience and resistance in Ukraine. I think it shows our solidarity for the Ukrainians right now, and this partnership has been deeply meaningful and important to us to be able to implement the vision of the curators and image makers that have participated in the show," Gresh said.

"Who Holds Up The Sky?" is on display in the MFA's visitor center and will remain there until May 21.

In the same week of the anniversary, President Biden made a surprise trip to Kyiv, Ukraine to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and renew the United States' pledge of support to the defending nation.
