Discount admission to the Rothko Centre over Christmas

All day on Saturday 25 December and Sunday 26 December, admission to Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre will be available at a discount.

Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre suggests boosting your Christmas with a rich cultural experience that includes the work of brilliant Latvian artists (a graphic retrospective “Road to the Sea” from Ilze Lībiete and paintings from Jānis Kupčs) and prominent international creators (Daniel Fuchs, Germany, with his solo show “Creation” and Elissa Marchal, France, with her exhibition “The Space Between”) along with an impressive retrospective show of Michael Kidner, a classic of British 20th-century art, called “Love is a Virus from Outer Space”. And, of course, visitors can still see Mark Rothko’s originals and “Found in the Collection” – a special exhibition highlighting the Rothko Centre’s finest acquisitions over the years.

Throughout the day on 25 and 26 December, admission to the centre is available at a discount price – 6.00 EUR for regular visitors, 3.00 EUR for pupils, students and senior citizens. Besides that, everyone can enjoy a free-of-charge open-air exhibition in the Rothko Centre courtyard, “Talk to Me” by the Ceramic Association of Latvia, and several public art objects across Daugavpils Fortress.
