From the opening in 1994 onwards, 190 eminent Swedish and international artists have exhibited their works in Umedalsparken. For 20 years Balticgruppen – the owner of the compound – has financed the art project ”Umedalen Skulptur”, curated by Galleri Andersson/Sandström. Through the years Balticgruppen has purchased 44 sculptures forming today an impressive permanent collection.
Visiting Umedalens Skulpturpark is completely free and the park is open around the clock all year round. The park is located at Umedalen, roughly 5 kilometers from the city centre and you can rent a bike from the campsite if you don’t want to drive.
Galleri Andersson Sandström offers guided tours of the region’s most visited tourist attraction – Umedalen Skulptur. These have to be pre-booked and you can find the contact details on their website.
