INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION “GIFT WORKS”
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.
