Art Exhibition From Janina Monkute-Marks Museum-Gallery Collection

Janina Monkute-Marks donated her works of art, including paintings, prints, rugs and tapestries to Kėdainiai. In 2000, Janina Marks established a Not For Profit Institution in Kėdainiai. The Institution purchased a 100 year old building for use as a Museum. The building’s interior was modernized to meet contemporary Museum standards while the exterior was restored to reflect the historical significance of this fine old structure. The Museum opened its doors to the public on October 20, 2001.

Artworks from the life of Janina Monkute-Marks are the heart of the Museum collection. The conservation and exhibition of her tapestries, paintings and graphics form the basis of the Museum’s work. The Museum also is developing a collection of artworks donated by artists who have exhibited here. Such contributions by visiting artists attest to the respect the Museum has earned for its programming and curatorship and add to the institution’s growing legacy. Janina’s paintings and textiles are displayed in galleries in the Museum’s two levels during the summer months when many tourists from Lithuania and other countries visit the Museum.

The museum’s mission is the cultural and educational commitment: to share with people the life of art, to present the dynamics and diversity of creative work, to take part in the country‘s and Kedainiai cultural life through organizing exhibitions, symposia, lectures, literary evenings, musical concerts and educational philanthropy projects.

This time Janina Monkute-Marks Museum-Gallery shares with you, dear visitors, the artistic heritage cumulated during the fifteen years. The halls are frienly shared by different artists whose works differ in style and technique.
