Art exhibition

The annual art exhibition opens in Urkin Piilopirtti always on the Mother’s Day Lunch. In the summer 2017 the name of the exhibition was Art by the Lakeside. All the works are planned and designed to this specific place and the planning and implementation have taken two years. Also in this project professor Radoslaw Gryta has worked as curator.

The entrance fee to the exhibition has in 2017 been 5 €/person. The exhibition was open 30.6. – 4.8. and after that the works continue their existent in Urkin Piilopirtti’s every day life. The best way to experience the art is to join a guided art tour.
