Art in Vesterålen
Vesterålen is a strip of islands along the northwest coastline. Nowhere else in the world does the Gulf Stream snuggle in closer to the shoreline than here. It was for that reason that the Gulf Stream was chosen as a theme and metaphor when the Vesterålen islanders celebrated the new millennium. The celebration is still going on!
