Art Scape 2017
"This summer 23 artists from all over the world will join Art Scape in taking over an entire region of Sweden. Between 24 July and 18 August Art Scape will create large-scale public art in Arvika, Filipstad, Forshaga, Grums, Karlstad, Munkfors,
Sunne, Säffle, Torsby and Årjäng "
Artscape is a nonprofit organisation that seeks to inspire people and promote public art for everyone. We believe that the dominance of the advertising boards in the modern cityscape needs to be challenged. Great art shouldn't be confined to only galleries and museums!
