Norwegian and international art in historical surroundings
Experimental and creative art in historical surroundings
Kunstbanken Hedmark Kunstsenter exhibits high-quality Norwegian national and international art in premises full of character. The art centre is located in the old Norges Bank building in Hamar. In its eight galleries there are temporary exhibitions with focus on applied and visual art. Art experiences are offered to a range of different audiences through travelling exhibitions.
Kunstaperitiffen, held every Thursday at 12:00 (except in periods between exhibitions), is a 15-minute presentation of one or more relevant exhibitions. It is free of charge, and explores the subject matter from different perspectives.
The premises are also available for meetings and special occasions. Kunstbanken offers bespoke events tailored to your requirements, incl. refreshments and guided tour of the exhibition.
