What Looks Good is Still Good
What Looks Good is Still Good shows new purchases of works in Drammens Museum's collection. The purchases have been made for the earmarked funds the government has provided in support during the corona pandemic. In January, we made a digital presentation of the works we bought for the first million, but we received additional support in two rounds in the spring of 2021. We have mounted the works in the Exhibition Room, but due to a close exhibition program we could not show it to the public. In order to be able to show the works, we have made a digital presentation where the curator of the exhibition Ida M. Klingvall and director Åsmund Thorkildsen talk about the works.
The purchased artists are:
Monika Mørck, Irene Nordli, Aurora Passero, Elise Storsveen, Johanne Hestvold, Fredrik Værslev, Sverre Wyller, Borgny Svalastog, Gerd Tinglum and Kari Mølstad
The barn from Straumen in Norway has been completely restored with several extensive and necessary improvements. Traditional craftsmen Audun Eken, Eivind Vinger and Thomas Løken have restored the log building which is now secured for the future.
