The Aine Art Museum

The Aine Art Museum is an active meeting place for fine arts in Tornio. Among other things, the museum offers exhibitions from the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions, workshops, and lectures. The Aine Art Museum was born from the love of art shared by Eila and Veli Aine, residents of Tornio. The collection of the Aine Pictorial Art Foundation, which was founded in 1974, form the basis for the Aine Art Museum operations.

The permanent collection of the Aine Pictorial Art Foundation represents Finnish visual arts from 1814 to today. The emphasis is on the Finnish expressionists from the beginning of the 20th century and the Prisma-group from the 1950´s and 1960´s.

The evolving collection of the Aine Art Museum contains works of modern and contemporary art. The museum emphasizes on the contemporary art and the contemporary art from northern Finland.
