Vilnius unveiled the second art installation to replace the Soviet statues removed from the Green Bridge in 2015.

The new installation 'Family', by Donatas Norušis, will invoke thoughts on family relationship with the city, and will be unveiled next week, according to a press release issued earlier in September.

The installation replaces the four weather vanes – the artistic installation 'The Activator of Kindness of Megarealit' – which have stood on the bridge since April, 2019.

In 2015, Vilnius city authorities removed Soviet statues and symbols from the Green Bridge, and launched a competition in 2018 for temporary art exhibitions to take their place instead.
