Art Sets Sail II

About the project
This exhibition is a sequel to one organized at the boat museum in 2009. The goal this year is to increase cooperation with Finnish artists by offering four artists or artisans from Ostrobothnia an exhibition period at the Holmön boat museum. The goal is to strengthen contacts with Ostrobothnia, highlighting coastal culture in northern Sweden and Ostrobothnia and a future enhanced cooperation. The project is run by Båtmuseets friends.
