For the Love of the Arts – 130 years of the Vyborg Friends of Art Association
Lappeenranta Art Museum, Lappeenranta
The Viipurin Taiteenystävät (Vyborg Friends of Art) Association, established in 1890, has been collecting art for 130 years.
In 1930, the association’s initiative led to the construction of the Vyborg Art Museum. However, the museum proved short-lived, and the bulk of its collections had to be evacuated to to the other parts of Finland in the face of war in the autumn of 1939. They were never returned to their original home. Today, the works of the Vyborg Friends of Art can be found in active rotation in the art museums of Hämeenlinna and Lappeenranta. For the Love of the Arts -exhibition brings forth the artpieces deposited in Lappeenranta Art Museum.
