One of 21st century’s most ambitious cultural projects in Eastern Europe, Daugavpils City Municipality Institution Rothko Museum, is a multifunctional hub for contemporary art, culture and education, located in the historical artillery arsenal building of Daugavpils Fortress. It is the only place in Eastern Europe where visitors can explore the work of Mark Rothko /1903-1970/, the world-renowned Daugavpils-born American artist, master of abstract expressionism and colour field painting.

Temporary projects take up 2000 square metres of gallery space and offer more than 40 different shows per annum, featuring some of the finest contemporary art projects in different media by regional, Latvian and international artists.
