VIDA Museum & Art Gallery, is built in a fantastically beautiful setting, at the top of the hillside sloping down towards Kalmar Sound at Halltorp, approx. 9 km south of Borgholm. The newly built VIDA Museum and Art Gallery was opened in June 2001, featuring an art gallery and two wings devoted respectively to Ulrica Hydman-Vallien and Bertil Vallien. The most important initial works from the early 1960s up to their very latest works in glass, ceramics, sculpture and painting are on display here. In 2003, VIDA was extended with an additional gallery, the North Gallery, to house the Rasjö collection, a large private art collection focusing on contemporary Swedish painting. Constantly changing exhibitions of paintings from the Rasjö collection are on display at VIDA. Another gallery, the Trotzig Gallery, was opened in 2005 to coincide with Ulf Trotzig’s 80th birthday. This gallery shows a range of exhibitions of Trotzig’s painting spanning the 50 years of his art.
