Description:

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.

MUSEUM MISSION

To present cultural and educational commitment, to share art with community at large: to organize exhibitions, lectures, literary evenings, musical concerts, educational and philanthropic projects. To introduce variety and diversity of creativity, to participate in cultural life of Lithuania and Kėdainiai. One of the gallery aims to introduce the people of Lithuania famous foreign and Lithuanian artists. The gallery annually held in seven different various contemporary art exhibitions. However, priority is always given to textile exhibitions per year on average held three.

THE MUSEUM COLLECTION

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.

EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY AND PROJECTS

Following the examples of museums in Lithuania and in other countries, beginning in 2002 our Museum began presenting educational outreach programs. These initiatives aim to inspire individuality and creativity in young people, to acquaint youth with the latest art techniques, and to encourage them to participate in cultural life. These efforts engage students who do not have opportunities to participate in productive pursuits outside of their schools and bring them together in a safe and nurturing environment. Students explore arts in traditional media such as drawing, painting, ceramics, and textiles as well as contemporary media such as digital filmmaking and photography. In order to encourage involvement and recognize emerging talent, the Museum offers awards and prizes for special student art projects.

Children from diverse backgrounds discover the joy of hands-on activities that encourage them to dream and share. The results have been impressive. Every year we develop programs to involve disadvantaged youth in recreational activities such as after-school programs, summer day camps and special excursions. Students develop their self-esteem and communication skills in the classes and field trips to cultural centers in other Lithuanian cities. Young people visit and critique exhibitions, and often art teachers lead the classes and workshops. At the end of each program, we celebrate with an exhibition of their creations.

MEMBERSHIP

Based on her experience with American examples of museum management, the Janina Monkute-Marks Museum introduced a new model for an art museum as a membership organization. Forming a circle of supporters and members opened doors to new ways of thinking and a new vocabulary. The first important step was the cultivation of financial support by Museum sponsors who recognize the value the Museum brings to the society.

The primary result of the Museum’s community-building efforts is moral and spiritual, for an individual motivated to become a member or donor joins a group with a common cause. Members become engaged in critical thinking and share responsibility and commitment. Stakeholders join hands to work for civic and personal growth.

All members are personally recognized and honored. Each member received an individual membership card and personal invitation to the exhibition opening reception. Annual meetings bring the membership together to discuss accomplishments and plan for the future; group excursions also provide fresh inspiration.

After all years of activity, the Museum has more than 50 family members in Lithuania. More than 200 members live in the U.S.
