Unique Destinations: Hill Of Crosses, Lithuania
Discover why people have been raising hundreds of crosses on one hill in the center of Lithuania since 1847 through the work of North Chesterfield photographer Ausra Huntington.
This photography exhibition, currently displayed at Henrico County Public Library – Tuckahoe, is the unique opportunity for Richmonders and city guests to learn about the history and culture of Lithuania. In 2018, this small but spiritually strong country, with its statehood dating back to over one thousand years, is celebrating the centenary of the restoration of its independence.
The Lithuanian herself, Ausra Huntington is always happy to represent Lithuania and the Lithuanian community of Richmond. Meeting with the artist/ Artist talk/ Presentations at schools or other community meeting places can be arranged upon request. (Contact the artist in person)
