The Bank of Finland will stage an Open Doors event for the general public at its main building from 29 September to 1 October Protected content . This three-day event will be open from 14:00 to 20:00 on Thursday and Friday 29–30 September, and from 11:00 to 17:00 on Saturday 1 October. To enter, you will need to join the queue at the main door, and the last entry will be one hour before closing.

The centrepiece will be an art exhibition within the Bank’s main building, which was completed in Protected content . The exhibition will provide an inspiring overview of the contents of the Bank’s substantial art collection, which contains some 1,200 artworks. Bank of Finland staff members acting as volunteer guides will be on hand to explain more about the artworks displayed. The artworks include familiar classics such as Juho Rissanen’s stained-glass windows and Lennart Segerstråle’s unique Finlandia frescos. The exhibition will also feature a collection of portraits of Bank of Finland governors from the period since Finland’s independence. An important principle followed by the Bank has been to support the work of living artists. Each year, the Bank acquires several works by Finnish artists or artists working in Finland. The latest acquisitions on display will include works from Samuli Heimonen, Heidi Lampenius and Osmo Rauhala.

PS: if too much queue, we will go for lunch or drink! ;-)
