Get your artfix at Wanås Castle – Kristianstad


”Wanås is a place in the world where art, nature, and history meet. It consists of a sculpture park and an art gallery as well as a medieval castle and an organic farm.

The sculpture park and permanent collection consist of around 70 site-specific artworks in the landscape that have been created especially for Wanås Konst by artists such as Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Yoko Ono, and Ann-Sofi Sidén. The sculpture park enjoys around 75,000 visitors each year, and 9,000 children and youth participate in learning activities such as tours and workshops.

Wanås Konst is run by the independent non-profit Wanås Foundation. Founding Director Marika Wachtmeister initiated the art activities at Wanås in 1987 and served as director until 2010. Since 2011, the foundation has been led by Co-Directors Elisabeth Millqvist and Mattias Givell. The organization is financed through its own revenue and receives federal, regional, and municipal support, as well as support from private foundations and sponsors.”
