For art lovers a real treat awaits in the form of the Antanas Mončys House-Museum in the beach resort town of Palanga. The gallery you see today was designed to mimic his studio and visitors and invited to both admire and engage with the work on display.

One of the most distinctive emigre artists who fled the Soviet Union, Antanas Mončys may have left his homeland to settle in Paris, but his homeland never left him. The creator of distinctive works across a plethora of media, he is probably best remembered for his wooden sculptures that meld both Lithuanian folk forms with modernist ideas and iconography. And for art lovers a real treat awaits in the form of the Antanas Mončys House-Museum in the beach resort town of Palanga. Just prior to his passing in 1993, the artist bequeathed his works, as well as a large collection of personal items, to the town of Palanga, and, after some fits and starts, a permanent home for his work was built. The gallery you see today was designed to mimic his studio and visitors and invited to both admire and engage with the work on display. Definitely worth a visit.
