Bornholm will learn from Kerteminde

15. November 2016 |

The director of the Museums of Eastern Funen, Erland Porsmose, has joined the board of directors of the Oluf Høst Museum.

Since the opening of the Johannes Larsen Museum in 1986, there has been a rapid development at the museum. Today there are lots of square metres and an extensive collection., 15 employees, including three curators, and in 2015, a whopping 60,000 guests at the museum.

Erland Porsmose has been there the whole way, and his experiences from here will now benefit the Oluf Høst Museum on Bornholm.

“It’s quite a scoop to get Erland on the board of directors. As the director of the Museums of Eastern Funen, he’s achieved distinguished results with the Johannes Larsen Museum in Kerteminde. He’s also been at the forefront of an extensive project at Nyborg Castle. I’m positive that Erland will bring new energy and strong qualifications to the Oluf Høst Museum. The same goes in regards to our museum members and volunteers,” says board chairman at the Oluf Høst Museum, Lars Nørby Johansen to Bornholms Tidende newspaper.

The Oluf Høst Museum is in Gudhjem, and like the Johannes Larsen Museum, it is built up around an artist’s home.
