A Look Back at 2017

Ekeberg Park – One of the Best Sculpture Parks in the World

This month The Wall Street Journal published an article about the five best sculpture parks in the world, and we got to know that one of them is in Oslo, Norway: Ekeberg Park. It’s quite embarrassing to admit but we did not know this park existed! We live not too far away so we decided […]
