The first snowfall and the rush of the winter season are here to remind us - the holidays are upon us! How will we surprise our loved ones this year? 

With the shops playing the same Christmas music, filled to the brim with lights you’d think you can only find in Las Vegas, and palettes of gift options that should just be labeled “buy me and support the Chinese manufacturing industry!” - there’s a need for something different, something authentic, and original.

Vilnius Academy of Arts (VAA) community invites you to transform gift shopping fever into a pleasant experience for you and your loved ones. Come to our festive art fair “Wrapped at the Academy” (December 8-18th) and discover unique art pieces & objects - prints, textiles, ceramics, paintings, drawings, illustrations, design & holiday decor objects created by the VAA students, graduates, lecturers and staff!

What holiday celebration goes by without surprises? All visitors of the fair can participate in a Christmas lottery and a pin-making workshop that will surprise you with unexpected gifts.

To kick off creative-festive-experimental spirits, VAA welcomes you to the fair’s opening event at 6 pm December 8th - a concert by audio performance artist, VAA graduate Simonas Nekrošius. The concert takes place at the VAA gallery “5 malūnai” (Malūnų g. 5, Vilnius).

“Wrapped at the Academy” working hours:
December 8-18th: Wed-Fri 2-7 pm, Sat 12-4 pm.
The event is hosted by the recently opened VAA Art and Design store (Maironio g. 6, Vilnius).

“Wrapped at the Academy” is organized by Vilnius Academy of Arts, VF Graphic Art students & faculty, VAA Art and Design Store.
This project is a part of the VAA Vilnius faculty BA Graphic Art study process.
