Me and Art


An opportunity to get to know art better through individual experience, under the guidance of artist and museum lecturer Baiba Sprance. Works displayed at the exhibition become the object of research and the theme for drawing assignments. Classes for adults are held on Thursdays at 3 p.m. and Saturdays at 12 noon. This is also a chance for children to acquaint themselves with artworks displayed at the exhibition by studying them, watching, thinking and drawing. The classes for children are held on Saturdays at 12 noon (on the 26th of April, 3rd of May, 10th of May and 17th of May). Advice by artist and museum lecturer Diāna Dimza-Dimme.

The Latvia-born U.S. artist Vija Celmins’ exhibition in Riga is a long-awaited event. Vija Celmins’ works represent American art from the 1960s to present. They can be found in the key contemporary art collections of the world: the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Centre Pompidou in Paris, The Tate Modern in London and elsewhere. The ocean, the desert, star fields and spider webs are the objects that the artist has continued to draw and paint in her series for many years.
