Mjellby Art Museum

Mjellby Art Museum, also known as the Halmstadgruppen's museum,[citation needed] was established by the members of the Halmstadgruppen, whose work is often presented here in new formations. Here is a large permanent collection of the group's art. The museum's art gallery shows annually four to five exhibitions of everything from contemporary art to modernism. The museum was founded in 1980 by Swedish art critic and museum director Viveka Bosson. She was the daughter of Erik Olson, one of the members in Halmstadgruppen. Bosson bought the former site of the Mjellby folkskola (elementary school) outside Halmstad in 1980, setting up Mjellby Art Museum and later donated it to the Halmstad Municipality.[2][3]
