The International Museum of Children’s Art opens a Pop-up gallery at the new terminal Pir Nord at Oslo Airport.
The pop-up gallery is an extended collaboration and a joint venture between the International Museum of Children’s Art and Avinor Oslo Airport, which marks the airport’s further commitment to good passenger experiences.
The gallery presents works made by children and young people between 4-17 years from around the world and can be visited by domestic travelers and tourists with departures and arrivals in the new terminal. In addition, the museum displays children’s art large format at the departure/arrival hall of the non-Schengen area and along the passage towards Pir South, near gate A12.
Passenger experiences to new heights
Avinor has as an important goal to lift the focus on good passenger experiences and a long term ambition to become Europe’s most attractive airport. The mobile children’s art gallery is temporarily located between gate C5-C7 at Pir Nord and can be visited during the summer period by travelers and tourists with domestic departures and arrivals.
Activities for children and young people
During the public holidays Christ’s Ascension the Museum organizes art workshop May 24, 25 and 26 – and in connection with Pentecost weekend June 2nd and 3rd art workshops will be combined with face painting between 12.00 am – 4 pm.
– In Avinor, we value that good travel experiences will get a lot of space at our airports. This gallery gives us a great opportunity to showcase children’s art and creativity to travelers from all over Norway and the world and we are a proud partner with the Children’s Art Museum, says Communications Manager at Oslo Airport Joachim Westher Andersen.
– We are looking forward to this wonderful opportunity and hope children’s art can lower the threshold for the public to appreciate and discover children’s own cultural heritage. At the same time, it is very innovative that Avinor Oslo Airport includes new meeting places with art in focus for travelers – especially families with children, including the many children traveling alone, says the Museum Director Angela Goldin.
The museum’s long-term goal is to spread respect and understanding of the value of children’s own history, art and culture and to create awareness and enthusiasm for children’s cultural expressions and cultural heritage.
