Marking the 2017 centenary of Kunsthal Aarhus, the park surrounding Kunsthal Aarhus has been transformed into a sculpture park with works by Danish and international artists. Works are continuously added to Kunsthal Aarhus Skulpturpark, which in turn makes it possible for passers-by to experience and perceive art at all hours of the day.
