Ocean in Art

The art exhibition from the collection of the Museum of the World Ocean (paintings, graphics, sculptures, decorative art)

This year the Museum of the World Ocean celebrates its 30th anniversary and is preparing exhibition surprises for its guests. In the present period, the museum has to halt its visitor service but the staff continues creating exhibitions which will be opened as soon as the doors are open wide for everyone. Right now, we are working at the project “Ocean in Art”. It will comprehensively present the museum’s art collection.

Over 70 by diverse artists created in different time periods are a sort of visual story about the ocean. Canvases and sculptures are only a drop in the ocean of art works kept by the museum. The depository comprises about 5,000 art pieces and the jubilee is a reason for glimpsing this collection. Seascapes, maritime history andfishermen’s everyday chores are the main topics of the future exhibition. Visitors will see pictures by Pen, Mikhailovskii, Fayustov, Lengryun, Konyukhov, etc. The museum will display sculptures by Lyudmila Bogatova, Stanislaus Cauer, etc. And there will be a premiere of the art composition by Henrika Bartkutė. Her art is always picturesque and uncommon.

Diverse works, diverse techniques. But every single picture is a chance to look at the Ocean in a new way and get swept away by art.

The art collection “Ocean” started at the Kaliningrad Regional Museum of History and Art for the future Museum of the World Ocean in 1983. Throughout 30 years the museum staff have collected over 5,000 artifacts anda special place is given to Kaliningrad artists telling about the beauty of the Baltic coast as well as sailors’ and fishermen’s labour.
