It started in 2009 as a temporary exhibition. It has now been a permanent fixture. In order to get a plaquette on the wall, you have to be a writer or poet with a strong cultural connection to Lithuania.

Why this street? Because it used to have a lot of bookstores and antique shops. They are long gone. The artworks try to give some of the vanished culture back to this neighborhood.

The colorful collection looks great on these grey walls. They might intrigue you to get to know the writer or poet depicted. Mission accomplished, hooked on Lithuanian culture.....

This is an interesting site and execution for artwork... Sort of like an outdoor art gallery. Worth a stop in if you're wandering around!

A small street with walls covered with tributes to writers who have had any influence (positive or negative) on Lithuanian literature.

It's like a permanent exhibition in street. Every work is like a small separate masterpiece and you can see indication to what artist it was dedicated in the list next on the wall.

It contains art works on the walls that pay tribute to authors not necessarily of Lithuanian origin but who had anything to do with Lithuania...like Thomas Harris whose character Hannibal Lector was Lithuanian...one of the cooler spots in old town
