Forget national museums in the capital cities and overwhelming buildings dedicated to the memory of an artist. You are likely to find the true soul of the art in the provinces, and the Art Museum Nord Trøndelag has taken upon itself the role of showcasing what national and professional local artists have made, and continue to make. The museum houses both established and new artists, through exhibitions such as Artists in Residence. One can however not mention the museum without referring to the modernist artist Johs Rian’s permanent room, where the exhibitions change.
