titleIL – Opening of exhibit „For Freedom…”

Saturday, March 10 at 2 pm
Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture (6500 S Pulaski Rd, Chicago, IL 60629)

Using photographs, documents, publications, and other historical artifacts, “For Freedom” explores Lithuanian Americans’ support for the cause of Lithuania’s independence one hundred years ago. Drawing on materials in the Balzekas Museum as well as public and private, national and regional archives and collections, the exhibition centralizes the presence of historical documents to prove that this century-long struggle for freedom was powered by ideas and ideals expressed in words and actions. Never before shown in Chicago, the original petition by Lithuanian Americans to the President of the US and a rare treat – Petras Rimsa’s sculpture “The Ploughman” will be on the exhibit. Visitors will be able to take pictures of these rare artifacts for the future generation.
