37 classes from 31 schools participated in the quiz organised during the competition. The classes that won the first four places and their masters were invited to the award ceremony. During the event, the teams received certificates of appreciation from the Minister of Environment ant KMAIK, as well as souvenirs and prizes from sponsors, the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai being among them.

We are happy to have had the opportunity to contribute to the competition with special prizes and promote “green sciences” among potential employees.

31/05/2021 /  UAB Juodeliai – the biggest sponsor of MO exhibition in Marijampolė

In order to engage more people in conversations about art and culture, as well as to maintain connections with Lithuanian cities and regions, MO Museum has decided to bring one of its most popular exhibitions to Marijampolė. Part of the exhibition “The Origin of Species: 1990s DNA” introducing the 1990s is open in Marijampolė Cultural Centre since 28 May of this year.

The exhibition is a place to find and discover well-known phenomena and to recognise the characters or types peculiar to that period. It is no coincidence that the 1990s style has been chosen – its popularity has resurfaced in the whole world. The importance of this decade for Lithuania does not only lie in fashion – it means the beginning of the period of restored independence.

The exhibition in Marijampolė also marks a new stage of partnership between MO museum and the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai. This friendship makes it possible to continue supporting MO Museum exhibitions in Marijampolė and provide the local community with a possibility to visit MO Museum.

UAB Juodeliai supported MO Museum’s 2019-2020 season – that is when the famous exhibition “The Origin of Species: 1990s DNA” was born. The company aims to contribute to the education of young people in Marijampolė and to promote employment, so we are glad that we can achieve this by bringing the best museum in Lithuania to the city, and to foster the initiative of making art accessible to everyone.
