Society is almost accustomed to constant change and turbulence in business. The same processes occur cultural institutions. In our case, there are neither the resources to maneuver nor the financial buffer to mitigate the negative effects of economic and political change. The state guarantees partial provision of the minimum wage fund and partial coverage of utility costs. The development of the museum depends only on us and you. Wherever you live, whatever you are interested in, join the community of fans of change in Odesa's cultural life!
The City Museum of Fine Arts (now the Odesa Fine Arts Museum) was opened in 1899 thanks to the Society of Fine Arts efforts. The museum building was donated to the city by public figure Hryhoriy Marazli. Wealthy and well-known people in the city took care of the Society of Fine Arts and the Museum at various times, such as General of the Infantry Prince Semyon Vorontsov, architect and teacher Franz Morandi, professor of medicine Mykola Sklifosofsky, great homeowner Count Michael Tolstoy, Governor-General Pavel Zertsebu, merchant, politician Hryhoriy Marazli and many others. The Society of Fine Arts is an important precedent in the history of Odesa's development. Local elites, supporting the development of culture and the arts, laid the foundation for transforming the city into a metropolis and a major center of cultural life.
In the autumn of 1899, the Odesa Fine Arts Museum received its first visitors. 120 years later, people who care about the museum and its fate come together to help the museum preserve its unique collection and promote domestic art among citizens and internationally.
Marazli Club is a public organization whose activities are aimed at supporting and developing the Odesa Fine Arts Museum. The use of membership fees as a financial instrument will for the first time in the history of modern Ukraine provide a cultural institution with a permanent fund for sustainable development, therefore guarantee the Odesa Fine Arts Museum a successful future.
