You can also experience HAM outside of Tennis Palace, as Helsinki features nearly 500 outdoor sculptures, pieces of environmental art and historical monuments that are accessible to everyone.
The sculpture bank contains information on a total of 500 sculptures located in Helsinki. In addition to basic information (the title of the work, the name of the artist, year of reveal, location), the bank includes background information on the works as well their location on the map. Some of the sculptures are composed of multiple parts. In such cases only the location of one of the parts is marked on the map.
Approximately 250 of the sculptures located in the parks, streets and plazas of Helsinki are part of HAM’s own collection. In addition to these, there are a number of works owned by companies, government agencies and private parties displayed in Helsinki’s public places, such as in the yards of buildings. Information about these works is also available in the sculpture bank even though they are not part of HAM’s collection.
HAM takes care of all the sculptures owned by the city so that they would be preserved as long as possible for future generations. We strive to repair and clean sculptures as quickly as possible in cooperation with the Public Works and Real Estate Departments.
