Culture and museums

taidemuseon kuvaThe City of Järvenpää's Cultural and Event Services encompass cultural and tourist services, Järvenpää Hall and museum services. The Cultural and Events Services produce and support a variety of cultural and city events, uphold the area's valuable cultural history and organise tourist services through grants.

The Cultural and Event Services also function as the partner for Järvenpää's annual music and art events. The Värinää art festival, Kallio-Kuninkala chamber music festival, Puistoblues festival and the 'Our Festival' as well as the International Sibelius Singing Competition, organised every four years, offer unique experiences in Järvenpää's cultural landscape.

Järvenpää Art Museum and Ahola are two of Järvenpää's museums. The main task of Järvenpää Museum is to manage collections and communicate art and cultural history information, for example, through exhibitions, museum pedagogy, expert services and advice, accessibility and publication activities.

In addition, the museum manages seven collections, which are the Järvenpää Art Museum's collection, the City's art collection, the cultural history collection, photo archives, the Ahola collection, Villa Kokkonen's collection, the Villa Cooper collection.

Järvenpää Art Museum organises changing exhibitions of the artwork of its featured artists Eero Järnefelt and Venny Soldan-Brofeldt. The Finnish artists, part of the golden age of Finnish art, lived in the Lake Tuusula artist community together with their family and friends Juhani Aho, Jean Sibelius and Pekka Halonen.

Ahola features an exhibition about the life of national author Juhani Aho and painter Venny Soldan-Brofeldt in the Lake Tuusula artist community.
