Audrius V. Plioplys Artistic Explorations of Thought

Permanent Collections


American Academy of Neurology

On June 9, 2012, the American Academy of Neurology had the grand opening of their new headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Academy is the largest organization of neurologists in the world. They moved the headquarters to downtown, on the western bank of the Mississippi River, across the street from the world-famous Guthrie Theater.

I was requested to provide the art to decorate this five story building, which I did--a total of eight pieces, one of which is 5 x 12 feet in size. My art is displayed on each floor, and is the only art on display. The pieces are all placed in the most prominent locations.

The staff even re-named the floors from 2nd, 3rd, 4th to yellow, orange and red, depending on the color of the piece in the lobby.

A team from Minneapolis visited me in Chicago, and video-taped me for almost six hours--to produce a six minute video! This can be seen on YouTube:

There are two large flat-screen TV sets on the main floor, one of which shows this video, and the other, my art works. These TV's can be seen from the sidewalk, which is quite impressive, especially at night.

All of these pieces are on permanent display, and the Academy staff would be glad to show them. It would be best to make tour arrangements in advance.
