On the 200th anniversary of his birth, we celebrate the “Year of Stanisław Moniuszko,” the renowned Polish 19th century Romantic era composer known as the father of Polish opera.

This year’s PRCUA Christmas card depicts Ubiel Manor in modern-day Belorus, the Moniuszko family home where Stanisław was born, the theme of October’s PRCUA Polish American Heritage Month coloring contest.

The winning contest entries can be viewed on PRCUA.org.

Original card artwork was created by Chicago artist Patrycja Stępniak, owner of “PatriciaArtStudio.”
