The exhibition "Promenades with a Bird" by Rimantas Antanas Šulskis (19431995), dedicated to the artist’s 75th anniversary.

R. A. Šulskis (1943–1995) was an artist with strong moral views, intellect, philosophical thinking, and a distinct style of expression in his creative work. He invented and perfected the unique technique of copper forging, which is original both in Lithuanian and world art.


R. A. Šulskis

Without collaboration with leading authorities, not engaged in the creation of sculptures of Soviet leaders and generals the artist was ignored, rarely had an opportunity to exhibit his works, did not have even elementary conditions for work. The life and work of R. Šulskis is an example of a persistent struggle against the Soviet system. His creative legacy includes decorative reliefs for interiors, sculptures for urban spaces, copper hautreliefs, round sculptures, monotypes and drawings, and has become a significant part of the Lithuanian professional contemporary art heritage.


R. A. Šulskis

On the occasion of R. A. Šulskis’ 75th anniversary the public is presented the exposition of small sculpture and monotypes – the works stored at the museum. It opens a lesser-known and researched stage of the artist's creative work, not only demonstrates the multifaceted talent of mastering various fields of art and techniques, but also deepens and broadens the insights into the personality, perhaps the most striking example of citizenship, search for freedom, which is worth mentioning alongside with other prominent personalities in the context of the centenary of Independent Lithuania.

Curator of the exhibition – Violeta Jasevičiūtė
