On the landscapes of a few select locations in Eastern Norway, sculptures by well-known contemporary artists have appeared. And there are more to come in the future.
In the project Skulpturstopp, several accomplished artists are invited to make sculptures in counties throughout Eastern Norway. The artists choose the location and create their sculptures specifically for the site. In this way the site becomes a part of the artwork. For visitors this is an opportunity to combine the experiences of art and nature in beautiful harmony. Sculpturestopp is an initiative by and under the management of Sparebankstiftelsen DNB. The aim of the project is to bring sculptures of a high international calibre to Eastern Norway. Sparebankstiftelsen DNB wants to bring art to the people as a means of contributing to increased awareness and knowledge about art.
