One of Herning's many prides is certainly HEART - Herning Museum of Contemporary Art, a unique building designed by American architect Steven Holl. HEART opened its doors in 2009 and offers visitors an exciting insight into both Danish and international contemporary art. There are changing special exhibitions covering all forms and types of contemporary art and in all types of media. There are also thematic group exhibitions and the collection itself is based on conceptual and experimental art from the 1930s to the present day. There are works by the Italian artist Piero Manzoni and the collection also includes works by Paul Gadegaard, Ingvar Cronhammar, Bjørn Nørgaard and many other artists.
The ´Socle du Monde biennial´ is the place where young artists create new creations together with Herning's companies. All in all, Herning is an ideal destination if you're looking for a family holiday in Denmark or perhaps just need a few days on a mini break in your own car - there's also a vibrant cultural centre with a concert hall, restaurant and shop, so there should be plenty of entertainment in store if you're interested in exploring contemporary art in an exciting and wide-ranging artists' environment at HEART - Herning Museum of Contemporary Art.
