ITE Art Surveys

ITE surveys in Finland are a unique way to record cultural heritage.

We carry out surveys in provinces to find and record visual folk creativity and original expression by our contemporaries. We also exhibit the outcomes of the surveys in various ways.

The stately concrete statues by Jurva-based Olavi Laiho were discovered in the surveys of ITE art carried out in Ostrobothnia. The artist’s works have been exhibited in both Finland and Germany. Image: Aki Paavola.
