Kunsthaus Glarus

The Kunsthaus Glarus, built in 1952, is considered to be one of the most striking art museums of Switzerland. The Kunsthaus Glarus with its straight-forward position towards contemporary art has made a name in the national and international art scene.

The Kunsthaus Glarus, under the administration of the Glarner Art Society, also puts on exhibitions relating to its own collection. With this collection, the public task of preserving cultural heritage is fulfilled. Regional works of art and art education are promoted with exhibitions and events at regular intervals at the Kunsthaus Glarus as well as at other locations.

He who wants to reap must sow. This also applies to culture; innovative cultural foundations are indispensable.
