The Lewben Art Foundation is a non-governmental institution, which has accumulated a representative collection of Lithuanian and international art from the end of the 18th century to the present day, and makes it accessible to the public. In addition to paintings, which predominate in the collection, there are large amounts of sculptures, photographs, graphic works, video works and installations. The Lewben Art Foundation organizes exhibitions and publishes books on art, in collaboration with art researchers, curators, artists, and cultural and art organizations.
The Lewben Art Foundation has established the Lithuanian Expatriate Art Foundation, which seeks to systematically explore the art of the diaspora and return it to the homeland. The collection of the Lithuanian Expatriate Art Foundation consists of works by members of the Lithuanian diaspora from the early 20th century to the present day.
The Lewben Art Foundation is constantly supplementing its activities with new cultural and educational projects, as well as new cultural initiatives. In 2013 Lewben Art Foundation became a partner in such projects as artnews.lt, artbooks.lt and Echo Gone Wrong.
