Fine art on electricity distribution cabinets

When it is a sunny day like today you go rather to an outdoor than indoor art exhibition. There are always a lot of sculptures you can admire but in Tampere we have also a wonderful exhibition of images and photographs attached on the electricity distribution cabinets. The exhibition arranged by Tampere Museum of Contemporary Art is between the railway station and Hämeenpuisto. The exhibition runs until September and is open 24/7! No admission fee!
