September 17, 2011 - May 28, 2012 World-Renowned Art
and World-Wide Art

 
The collection of Holstebro Kunstmuseum presents art as a universal phenomenon, and so the museum exhibits art from different cultures – for example presentations of Danish art from the 1930s until today, prints by top names in international Modernism and traditional art from Africa, Asia and South America.
