THE ART COLLECTION
The art collection consists of classical sculptures from the 19th and early 20th century and sculptures and installations by contemporary artists. Ekeberg Sculpture Park since its opening in 2013 has become an important contribution to Oslo and Norway’s public art scene. The park has received wide recognition both domestically and abroad and attracts a large international professional audience. Shortly after opening the Wall Street Journal featured Ekebergparken as one of the world’s five best sculpture parks.
Ekeberg Sculpture Park is a result of a close cooperation between Oslo Municipality and C. Ludens Ringnes Foundation. Oslo Municipality owns the grounds, while the private Foundation manages the park.
