The year 2019 marks the 120th anniversary of painter Yrjö Saarinen’s birth.
In honour of the occasion, Hyvinkää Art Museum arranges an extensive exhibition,
Visions of Colour, to celebrate Saarinen’s vibrant art. Born in Jyväskylä, Saarinen
moved later to Hyvinkää, where he spent almost half of his life.

The anniversary exhibition presents more than one hundred paintings that
showcase this self-taught artist’s unique use of colour. In these paintings
depicting Saarinen’s favourite topics – still lifes with flowers, nudes, landscapes,
portraits and self-portraits – intense colours come together through lively
brush strokes.

Hyvinkää Art Museum owns 84 paintings and more than 200 drawings by Saarinen,
most of which are part of the Sonck Art Collection donated to the museum by Karin
and Carl Eric Sonck in 1977.

TAIDELABRA – ART LAB
See, experience and experiment!


The Art Lab is a new, interactive exhibition space that combines
a learning environment and the Hyvinkää Art Museum’s permanent
art collection. Multi-sensory experiences, digital applications,
experimentation, and hands-on activities form the heart of the Art Lab.


Art Lab


Five very different rooms and works from the collection of Hyvinkää Art Museum
form an entity called Taidelabra – Art Lab. Art Lab offers visitors the opportunity to
question and be surprised, or even confused.

Art and labs are two very different things, but in the Art Lab they come together.
What is art? It consists of playing, experiencing, using all senses, finding new perspectives
and making discoveries. A lab is a place for hands-on experiences, experiments and
exploration, not white coats and test tubes. It is a place where you can touch, listen and
be surprised. Or you can just sit, watch and study the works without any rush.
