  • As part of the Arts Campus at Umeå University, the Museum of Art is the hub for production, exhibition, and discussion of contemporary art in different genres. The museum is built as a tower with three open stories, in order to fulfill different exhibition requirements. The Nordic design is reflected in the varied, ample daylight in the building and in the close interaction between museum, art, and nature. The facade is made up of vertical slats of larch wood, emphasizing the museum’s symbolic value as a beacon of creativity in Umeå.
