15. V. K. Jonynas Gallery



Architect: Algimantas Kančas, 1989.


The Gallery of Vytautas Kazimieras Jonynas, designed by architect Algimantas Kančas, first opened its doors to visitors in 1993. The building, erected at the time of a historical turning point for Lithuania, had a dual purpose: the gallery-house was intended for both everyday life and exhibitions, thus visitors will also discover spaces that are common to any residential building, such as a bedroom or a kitchen. After more than four decades spent in emigration, from 1989 to 1997, V. K. Jonynas enjoyed summers in Druskininkai. Today, his house-gallery, which has become a branch of the M. K. Čiurlionis Art Museum, functions as a true time capsule, with everything left as it was when the artist spent his summers here. The finishes of all the gallery rooms are authentic: the parquet flooring is typical of the 80s and 90s, as is the design of the walls, ceilings, and doors; the furniture, chandeliers, and the artist’s personal belongings are all authentic.
