The outdoor spaces of the MO Museum have been illuminated by new colours over the festive period. So come and take a break from a routine of everyday life! You can experience the sculptures and outdoor spaces of the MO Sculpture Garden in a new and festive way from 22 December to 2 January.
New colours and music in the MO Sculpture Garden
For the second year running, the MO initiative “The Art of Feeling Christmas” creates a colourful anticipation of Christmas and the New Year.
“We want to enrich the anticipation of the holidays by inviting you to the MO Sculpture Garden, which will be full of colour and will also feature a special soundtrack. Perhaps this will help to slow down the pace and welcome the holidays more calmly,” shares Milda Ivanauskienė, Director of the MO Museum.
In the festive MO Sculpture Garden, you will be able to rediscover the works of Lithuanian sculpture’s coryphaeans, such as Mindaugas Navakas, Petras Mazūras, Vladas Urbanavičius, as well as Ksenija Jaroševaitė, Vince Kisarauskas and Donatas Jankauskas-Duonis. The mood will be set by an electroacoustic soundtrack enriched with Ambient sounds and winter motifs. Thus, you will be able to discover the MO sculptures both visually and musically.
The initiative partner of the MO Sculpture Garden, which will shine in new colours, is GO Vilnius.
