Research work done at the Salo Art Museum
The research work at the Art Museum is integrally linked with exhibition activities. For example, the museum can trace and document the entire production of an artist. Often the research leads to a publication. The Salo Art Museum has produced a number of publications. A publication may treat, for example, the works of the region´s own artists, collected as an exhibition at the Salo Art Museum. In practice, the research work of the museum involves investigating, collecting and preserving data. For example, the Salo Art Museum has mapped and listed the public sculptures and monuments of Salo. The mapping, documenting and registering of works are an integral part of the Salo Art Museum´s tasks. When the Art Museum ensures that technical information is added to the work catalog, the details of the works are preserved for the future.
