Chernivtsi Art Museum was established in 1988. It is located in the building of former Savings Bank (1901), which is one of the best examples of the Viennese Secession – a monument of national importance. The core of the museum's collection consists of items collected by Chernivtsi Ethnographic Museum. Replenishment of collections took place during research expeditions, as well as from charitable gifts of individual artists and patrons. Funds enumerate more than 10 thousand exhibits; most of them are represented in the permanent display.Art of Bukovyna of XVII-XX centuries that range from home icons by craftsmen to monumental art works of professional artists make up the foundation of the museum funds. Here there are collections of Bukovynian carpets, embroidery, Easter eggs, works of jewellers and woodcarvers, etc.
The building itself is stunning and there is a room dedicated to the artist that did the glass parts of the building so it is nice to get that put into context. The paintings are from artists that lived in the area and cover different eras and as somoene from Bukovina the Romanian side a lot of the art felt like home and some of it was from home :))). Also good place to talk about art with your partner ;).

Volodymyr Ivasyuk was a very popular Ukrainian songwriter, composer and poet. He is the author and composer of the widely popular "Chervona Ruta" song popularized by Sofia Rotaru in 1971, and later covered by other singers.The museum is located at the memorial family apartment of Ivasyuk.The five rooms of the museum display indoor scenes of the music writer and his parents, show an exhibit of his life and work. As a whole the apartment retains what we call memories – books, records, photographs, music notes, drafts of music works, Volodymyr’s grand piano and the violin which he played when studying at the music school. In other words it retains authentic things keeping the life aura of this creative person untouchable.
