In attempt to see more of Lithuania I created a Bucket List for myself a few months ago. Slowly I've been ticking items off of my list, and most recently J and I accompanied some friends to visit Europos Parkas, which is an open air sculpture museum in the geographic center of Europe. Europos Park was founded in 1991 by the Lithuanian sculptor Gintaras Karosas and his works are featured prominently throughout the park. The park also features work from numerous other sculptors worldwide.
Remember, I am so not an artist (yeah biology!), so many of the pieces I just could not understand. Particularly confusing was the piece entitled, "Threshold," which looked to me like a bunch of logs on the ground in the woods. Obviously, I just didn't get it. However, there were some very cool sculptures, like the sculpture made of tv sets that has slowly degraded with time, the giant metal head, and the wavy wall pictured below (I can't remember the actual names of these pieces). Some of the sculptures fit in very well with their surroundings and really were magnificent.
I think my favorite part of the park though, was the creative playground (located near the restaurant). It had play items that I had never seen before and looked like such fun to play on. Even adults seemed to be enjoying them!
Do you have a local bucket list? Have you been to a sculpture park?
