Who we are
Occupying beautifully restored Oginski palace, a large contemporary space at formal horse stables and 58ha park around the palace, Samogitian Art Museum embraces art which crosses disciplines from music to film, painting to digital art, sculpture to performance. We challenge ourselves and our visitors to think about art and its place in the world as well try to accentuate an importance of the Oginski palace collection as a cultural ‘heritage’ for the future generations. International collaborations and exchanges have made the Samogitian Art Museum a place for creative conversation and a source of surprise, inspiration and imagination for its visitors and participants.
Our ambition is to offer a centre of culture and exchange open to all, to put the creativity of the artists in the limelight, and to contribute to Lithuania’s cultural appeal. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are very important to us. Our conviction is that art and culture are fundamental components in making people come together in a society which is increasingly divided. The Samogitian Art Museum has the willingness to create a place where everyone will feel at home.
