If you enjoy learning about different countries and cultures but can't travel as much and as far as you wish, this photography exhibit will help you to explore the world from the comfort of your local library.
“Unique destinations: Hill of Crosses, Lithuania” by the internationally exhibited Lithuanian photographer Ausra Huntington (born Paulauskaité) will take you to the historic site just outside of the city of Šiauliai in Lithuania. You will discover why Lithuanian people have been raising hundreds of handmade crosses on one hill since 1847 and enjoy the mastery of handcrafted crosses and sculptures. From there, you will continue your journey around Lithuania by visiting a few small church towns and the seaport Klaipeda with its stunning sunsets and unique Prussian and Viking style architecture.
There is no fee for viewing the exhibit, but we advise you to check the library website for any changes in regular work hours or any coinciding events that may take place in the meeting/gallery room. If you have any questions about the artwork please contact the photographer directly, using provided contact information or ask the librarian to help you to get in touch with the artist.
All photos are kid/Family friendly.
