The Art Left was assigned the project of creating and producing a 168 page book for the Rusalka Ukrainian Dance Ensemble based in Winnipeg, MB. For over a year, The Art Left worked closely with the Rusalka Alumni committee in creating this stunning hard cover commemorative book. Rusalka: The Legend and the Legacy book is now available at McNally Robinson Book Sellers, Oseredok Ukrainian Cultural & Education Centre and Kalyna Ukrainian Bookshop. The commemorative book is the most extensive collection of Rusalka history dating back to its beginnings in 1962. Each decade is featured in this 9x11 hardcover book that features over 300 photographs, 50 personal anecdotes, an authored history of the ensemble and a detailed member directory. Relive and recollect significant trips, performances and milestones throughout the book's 168 pages.
