In the fall of 2014, Poland’s first lady visited the Kosciuszko Foundation in New York City, where she toured the organization’s art collection and learned about the KF’s history and mission. KF President and Executive Director John Micgiel welcomed Anna Komorowska and her visiting group, which included Ewa Junczyk-Ziomecka, consul general of Poland, and members of the Polish president’s office. After her tour, which included observing an art conservator restore Wojciech Kossak’s painting The Knight and the Maid, and meeting with KF trustees and executives, Komorowska attended a small reception and signed the foundation’s guestbook.
Founded in 1925 and headquartered in New York City, the KF seeks to promote a better understanding of Polish culture and history in the United States and to facilitate educational and cultural exchanges with Poland. The foundation now has chapters all over the United States, including groups in Chicago, Houston, and Philadelphia.
Cynthia Rosicki, a founding partner of Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates, P.C., is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Kosciuszko Foundation.
