On the evening of September 18 in the heart of Warsaw Ambassador Jones helped officially open the innovative outdoor exhibition Tadeusz Kosciuszko – A Man of Vision. Designed by the Museum of Polish History and proudly supported by the US Embassy, the exhibition will be open to the public 24 hours through the end of September at the Krakowskie Przedmiescie near the Plac Zamkowy in Warsaw.
Ambassador Jones hailed the originality and focus of the exhibit, commenting that it’s “A fantastic exhibition that brings together Tadeusz Kosciuszko’s silhouette, his dedication to the idea of freedom and his accomplishments.”
Ambassador Jones joined Polish History Museum Director Robert Kostro and other dignitaries at the opening, including Senator Anna Marie Anders, Wojciech Kolarski of the Presidential Chancellery, and the Ambassadors of France and Switzerland.
Held in the bicentennial year of Kosciuszko’s death, the exhibition provides visitors with an unparalleled opportunity to learn more about Kosciuszko’s fascinating life, his devotion to the ideal of freedom, and military engineering exploits. For those unable to visit the exhibition in person, the exhibition has been made virtually available on the Google Arts & Culture platform at www.wystawy.muzhp.pl.
The Museum of Polish History is also holding educational tours highlighting the 1794 uprising Kosciuszko led against imperial Russia and the Kingdom of Prussia. Please sign up at Oferta.firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 22 211 90 49 starting on September 5.
The US Embassy invites you to celebrate the life, accomplishments and ideals of Kosciuszko. Please come to discover why the third President of the United States Thomas Jefferson called Kosciuszko “the purest son of liberty as I have ever known.”
