Literatu Gatve, Vilnius



Vilnius, Lithuania

I was delighted to turn one of Vilnius' many corners and find myself, unexpectedly, in an art gallery. I am, after all, a big fan of public art in its myriad forms.

Literatu Gatve (Literature Street) is a small road lined with tiny artworks set into the walls. Each piece has a literary connection to Lithuania, although I'm disappointed to say that even after checking the concordance, these were mostly unfamiliar names to me. But while the literary references may remain obscure to the non-Lithuanian, this is a fun project even at the most superficial level, and I wish there were more streets like it.

I say what a novel idea. The display provides interest and joy in an otherwise plain street.
Have a wonderful weekend

My daughter and I just went to our local spring arts fair. I can't imagine life without art, whether on buildings or on canvas! Thanks for sharing!
