Skaftfell – Center for Visual Art

Skaftfell operates in the field of contemporary art, on a local and international level. It´s activities are based upon exhibitions and events, alongside a residency and education program. A Bistro on the ground floor serves coffee, beverages and food, plus free Internet and an art library.
