Collaborating with diverse groups is an important part of the work at Akureyri Art Museum. Ways to broaden the operations are constantly being explored as well as making the collection accessible to people of all ages. One of this year s innovations at the Akureyri Art Museum is designing an exhibition for a space outside the museum. The Museum and the seniors home Hl collaborate in this project, which is meant to enlighten and delight the residents, staff and guests at Hl, with two art-exhibitions and guided tours. The aim is to maintain peoples cultural connection to the art history of Akureyri and to revive memories and discussion on visual art and society.
