Our tutors Sally Mae and Juliet encouraged us to visit galleries, all kind of art exhibitions etc.
As well wander in the forest and scope out the nature.
Well, I did ! I took apart to a excursion called “Arts of Pinsiö” with my friends yesterday on Thursday.
At first we visited Osmo Rauhala´s home farm. Osmo Rauhala being one of pioneers of the current international movement in Finnish contemporary art, is as well an organic farmer. He told us about the history of the farm. On the premises, on the brook, lives a very rare freshwater pearl mussel. There are only two brooks in Finland, where you can find these mussels.

After that we visited at Nancy Holt´s earthwork “Up and under”. It has been built in 1996 and lately renewed.
It is built on sand, cement, soils, grass and water.
