This year, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Gustav Vigeland´s birth. The celebration will be nationwide with a broad spectrum of exhibitions, events and activities. The Vigeland Anniversary in 2019 will celebrate the man behind Norway’s largest tourist attraction, the Vigeland Park. At the same time, the anniversary will highlight the diversity in Vigeland’s production. Vigeland was a recognized portrait artist, and it was as the creator of some of the country’s finest monuments that he earned his position in Norwegian art history.
Read all about it our anniversary magazine. It´s in Norwegian, but still worth a look. You will also find more information about different activities and exhibitions here on our web page.
The 150th anniversary is marked with an Anniversary Celebration in the Vigeland Park. There will be free cake and activities such as yoga, rebus races and a sculpture workshop for kids all day. The Sinnatag Run for kids is arranged by Oslo Maraton and you can send a summer postcard with the anniversary stamps for free (only on June 22 2019). The celebration will end with a full concert with the NRK Orcestra KORK and radio theatere (in Norwegian).
