The sculpture park at Høvikodden - Henie Onstad Kunstsenter

Nature provides a very special setting for experiencing art. At Høvikodden you will find 30 sculptures by Norwegian and internationally renowned artists on 140 acres of land. Welcome into the forest, out into the water and around the lawn. Here you will find a varied expression of sculptures from classic figures to abstract and avant-garde works of art that will rise your curiosity and inspire visitors. Several works also function as a bench. Most famous are Soluret by Arnold Haukeland, Filipstadbananen by Trygve Fredriksen and Tankesirkel by Per Inge Bjørlo.

The area is beautifully located within walking distance of Sandvika with the coastal path and beautiful hiking areas around the art center.

Jason Tyler underwater sculpture park by Sjøholmen

Just beyond Henie Onstad we find Sjøholmen art and culture house. In the autumn of 2017, twelve sculptures were sunk into the Oslo Fjord, to see how these will behave through the winter and cope with the ice. The sculptures are Jason Tyler's underwater sculpture project with casting of children from five to fourteen years of age from different nationalities, which are attached to the seabed to create a microclimate to improve the water quality in the sea.

Two of the sculptures can be seen on the bathing jetty while the rest are only experienced on the large posters in the park or by free diving in the sea. The sculptures are meant to give life back to the sea.

The sculpture park at Bærums Verk

In the beautiful outdoor area you will find the sculpture park. Among idyllic historic buildings along the river, you can freely view the 29 sculptures, designed by the country's foremost sculptors such as Aase Texmon Rygh - Møbius lying, Nico Widerberg - Two people and Skule Waksvik - Hanne is sunbathing.

Here you will find the best of renowned Norwegian sculptors from our time. It is over 400 years since Bærums Verk was established, and today the place is a great vibrant shopping center with unique shops and restaurants. Centuries of cultural history are linked to the products from the ironworks - countless kilns and cast iron products are brilliant examples of "sculptures" created at Bærums Verk.

Fornebu sculptures and installations

At Fornebu, the business community has invested millions in world-class outdoor art installations; on the commercial buildings of Telenor and Equinor, in the beach zone and the sculpture park "Imprints" by Magne Furuholmen consisting of giant ceramic sculptures and vases. These can be found in the courtyard at Aker's head office.

Norway's old main airport has become an art destination. Here is a great variety between beautiful figurative sculptures, via abstract works to digital installations attached to the buildings - meant to rise curiosity, set the mind in motion and excite visitors.

Use the Sunday excursion for a short art tour. Explore the area as a bicycle safari or on foot and discover selected works of art at Fornebu in combination with other experiences in the vicinity such as bathing and restaurants.

Enjoy
