2016 year in review

In 2016, VAA Nida Art Colony teemed with events and exhibitions, celebrated its 5th birthday, and became more open and attractive than ever for those interested in contemporary art and education after opening its new building. This was demonstrated not only by impressive media coverage and ongoing or new partnerships, but also record numbers of those of you who have visited our shows and follow what we do. We want to celebrate the intensity and abundance of 2016 together with you, reflecting on the growth and expansion of our activity in this recent year.
