Iittala Centre of Naive Art

Naive art exhibition in Iittala

Naive art has a childlike tendency. The paintings are usually dreamlike and almost surrealistic with fantasy themes. The motifs are very narrative and autobiographical. The overall impression is funny and optimistic.

The Iittala Centre of Naive Art is located in the old wooden two-storey school house right next to the Iittala Glass Centre – Iittala Village. There is a large selection of novelties and classics on display. Summer exhibitions have an average of 20.000 visitors yearly. In the winter season we offer a variety of art courses, work shops and seminars, small concerts – and naive art exhibitions.


The summer exhibition is about to be opened as planned, but of course we follow the rules and regulations under these unfortunate circumstances due to the Covid19 epidemic. You can find some of the works that were on display in the last winter exhibition now online (the texts are only in Finnish, but the language of art is universal!)

It is now possible to visit our exhibition on a private tour during the last weeks of May. Book here:
