EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art preserves, researches and displays Finnish and international modern and contemporary art. The collection activities of the museum are geared not only towards the art museum audiences of today but also those of tomorrow. Maintaining a collection involves the selection of what is central to the art of our time and preserving it for future generations. The collections form a basis for the museum’s exhibitions as well as its research and publication work.
Museum’s own collection is called the EMMA Collection. The Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection, the Tapio Wirkkala Rut Bryk Foundation Collection and the L-G Nordström Art Collection are all deposited at EMMA. The Osmo Valtonen Art Collection has been donated to EMMA. In addition, EMMA maintains an Educational Collection Art Pack, which includes works of art that may be used in various art projects, workshops and guided tours.
