"Modern Art Museum" Sara Hildén Art Museum Tip by akkipaa

Sara Hildén Art Museum, Tampere: 3 reviews and 7 photos

Sara Hildén (1905 - 1993) was a Finnish businesswoman and arts patron. Sara worked in various clothing stores since the 1920s in Tampere and 1950 she founded her own fashion shops in Tampere and in Lahti (Fashion House Hilden and Muoditar).

Let's say, she made money and invested it to arts, and she settle up "Sara Hilden Foundation" to which she gave the paintings and nowadays the foundation has about 5000 works.

But there are also exhibitions, Andy Warhal and Ron Mueck art has been seen and last Friday I was in the opening of Jarmo Mäkilä exhibition. Jarmo is an artist mixing mythology, pop culture, his childhood, socialism and working class live being of of our well-known post modernists.
