Umedalen skulpturpark

Umedalen skulpturpark is an art exhibition and a sculpture garden in Umeå in Sweden.

History

An art exhibition was arranged in Umedalen for the first time in 1994 and it is now a permanent exhibition in a sculpture garden at the previous Umedalen hospital precinct.

The property company Balticgruppen (The Baltic Group), together with Art Gallery Galleri Sandström Andersson, in 1987 bought the uncommissioned psychiatric hospital Umedalen, around 20 stone houses in a park, by the Västerbotten County Council. Sweden's largest art gallery has been built around the historic buildings that were previously used as the hospital. Balticgruppen has purchased 44 sculptures, which now form the permanent exhibition in the sculpture park.
