You will see:
Over 700 samples of the Baltic art: pins,
brooches, buttons and necklaces made of metal, amber, brass,
bone or horn; over 50 most characteristic ancient engravings,
drawings, works of graphics and paintings of the greatest
artistic value. They were collected and brought to Vilnius
thanks to tremendous effort and kind-hearted assistance of
the partners from various museums in Lithuania and Europe.
Their value exceeds millions of Litas. Next to the ancient
artefacts you will find the works by contemporary artists
interpreting the Baltic culture and its symbols. The overall
exposition area reaches 300 m².
We highly recommend the exhibition to:
Females. The professional artists
create unique and exceptional copies and interpretations of
the Baltic jewelry on the occasion of the project “The
Baltic Art”, which will be available from the opening day of
the exhibition “The Baltic Art”. Shirts, handbags and other
original items made by textile designers will be available
for acquisition at the exhibition “The Baltic Art” as well.
The equivalent items of archeological findings and their
interpretations will be also available upon request.
Scholars. The publication of the
collection of articles “The Baltic Art” and the CD provides
the information about the Baltic art as a unique and
significant legacy of one of the oldest ethnical groups, the
most characteristic articles of prehistoric art, which in
some cases date as far back as the Neolithic Age, and the
tendencies of their development as well as the ways, in
which the tradition of the Baltic art is transformed in the
creative works of the 19th – 21st
Everyone. A comprehensive guide to
the exhibition “The Baltic Art” with colourful illustrations
will assist in deciphering the codes of the Baltic patterns,
colours, forms and periods.
