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 centuries.

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.
