What are art museum collections made of? The Lappeenranta Art Museum collection is not a random bunch of various acquisitions, but it consists of several collections. How did the different collections come about? Why do we have them? What kind of works do they feature?


You can take a look at the heart of the museum and see what we do at the Art Museum's summer exhibition. The exhibition presents the different starting points and themes of the collections. The Joutseno collection is an art collection of the former municipality of Joutseno. The focus of the collection, which was donated by Skkijrvi-born Pertti Ala-Outinen, is on prints by Finnish artists.
Lappeenranta Art Museum's own collection mainly focuses on contemporary art created in south-eastern Finland. In addition to the museum's own premises, the works from this collections can be found in various public spaces in the city of Lappeenranta, such as schools. The Art Museum's collections from Vyborg and Karelia include the deposit collections of Viipuri Friends of Art Association (Viipurin Taiteenystvt ry), the Pamaus society and Foundation for Karelian Culture (Karjalaisen Kulttuurin Edistmissti). The latest deposit collection of Lappeenranta Art Museum is the Onni and Helmi Karttunen Foundation collection.

The newest work in the Lappeenranta Art Museum collection is Jonna Kina's video work Four Sculptures in Fifteen Pieces, which won the VIDS21 media art idea competition organised by the museum and will have its Finnish premiere at Lappeenranta Art Museum in summer 2022. The work was commissioned by Lappeenranta Art Museum and produced in collaboration with the Art Museum of Estonia. The VIDS21 media art competition was sponsored by the Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation.
