30 years!

The art museum opened 5 February 1992

Today, February 5th 2022, marks 30 years since the art museum in Stavanger opened its doors to the public for the first time. It has been 30 remarkable years for the art museum by the Mosvannet lake. We will mark the jubilee by looking forward: What will the future hold for the art museum? What role can the art museum play in Stavanger for the 30 years to come? What can the art museum mean to the city of Stavanger in the future?


We will mark the jubilee by inviting everyone to an open seminar. Date and programme for the seminar to be announced!
