GEORGE MACIUNAS SQUARE

J. Mačiūno a.

It is probably the only square in the world that you can‘t get into. Nevertheless, it‘s the only square that you can‘t even see while looking from the sidewalk. George Maciunas would have been able to see it from his balcony at 1 Parodos street, if he hadn’t gone to the USA. But then, there would be no square at all.  The iconic FLUXUS aztec symbol is drawn on the crossroad. The square was opened on July 20th, 2017. Author - the artist Naglis Rytis Baltušnikas. George Maciunas, the father of FLUXUS movement, was born in Kaunas, Lithuania. There’s a small memorial plaque on his childhood house and a FLUXUS room in the Kaunas picture gallery (K. Donelaičio g. 16).
