Families

Throughout 2014, artist Palle Nielsen’s legendary 1968 work The Model is installed in ARKEN’s biggest gallery, the Art Axis. The Model is an installation in the form of a playground where children can play, move around and express themselves freely. There are tractor inner tubes, foam bouncy castles, paint, cardboard and paper, dress-up clothes, face paint and music, even a plant workshop.


During school holidays ARKEN arranges workshops, concerts etc. for children and young people.
