As an expression of our shared missions to advance science and collaboration, this year's concert goal is to help the people of Ukraine.

Through "Chopin. The Space Concert," AFI and MSV are raising awareness and funds to establish a Center of Excellence to train and support Polish and Ukrainian medical specialists in Polytrauma (Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, Acute Stress Disorder, Amputations, and other trauma related injuries and systems of care) in Poland.

The Center of Excellence is being developed in collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine, the Medical Society of Virginia and the National Center for PTSD, a program of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Agnieszka Pilat to Unveil New Painting

The artwork will commemorate the shared mission of Poland, Ukraine, and the United States following the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion, and the battle for democratic values all have undertaken. The painting was completed with the assistance of Boston Dynamics' Spot robot, a subtle nod to the role that new technology is playing in shaping the war's outcome, and the rapid coordination between all three countries.

As a Polish-born artist who grew up in the shadow of the Soviet Union, the United States was an inspiration for freedom.
