About the Museum
The Museum was created by the federation of four separate organizations, each with its own collection and staff, and was opened to the public at the present location on November 18, 1989. The member organizations were:
Since its founding the Museum received a collection of 128 wood carvings by 14 contemporary Lithuanian wood sculptors. The collection was assembled in Lithuania and transported to the U.S. by Romas Pukstys and represents a gift of the sculptors to the Lithuanians of the world. These works are on a permanent display in the Wood Carvers' Gallery of the Museum.
Selections from the Museum's Collection
The aim of this webpage is to provide a small visual sample of the many artifacts displayed in the Museum to a wider audience. The photographs, available at this time, were taken somewhat hurriedly and some are marred by the reflections of lights. In many cases, the specific information identifying the artist and the artwork are missing. When better or additional photographs become available, the following gallery of images will be improved and expanded. Identifying and descriptive information will be added as it becomes available.
