Portrait of President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö on display in Ateneum Art Museum

The portrait of President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö will be placed on display in Ateneum Art Museum on Tuesday 5 June. It will be on exhibition to the public until 2 September, after which it will be returned to the Presidential Room in the Government Palace.

The portrait of the President of the Republic is on display on the second floor of the museum in connection with the Stories of Finnish Art exhibition. You can visit the exhibition during the museum’s normal opening hours by paying the normal entrance fee or using a Museum Card. Visitors under the age of 18 always have free entry to Ateneum. On Wednesday 6 June between the hours of 10.00 and 20.00 there will be free entry to the museum for everyone.

The portrait of President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö was unveiled in the Presidential Room of the Government Palace on Friday, 4 May. It is a mosaic composed of one hundred partial works by one hundred younger-generation artists — graphic artists, sculptors, painters, video artists, performance artists and photographers — who are or have been active in Finland. Implemented as community artwork, the portrait was produced by visual artists Atro Linnavirta and Anita Naukkarinen.
