The Art Hall is located in what was previously called Nybruket. This building was erected in 1896, when Kistefos Træsliberi was expanded with another wood pulp factory. Nybruket was a fully equipped pulp mill. Today, the building has been emptied of equipment, and the pulp mill has been turned into an art hall. The historic character of the building is preserved, and today's art hall consists of two rooms over two floors. Each floor has its unique character, and together they make up an exciting and flexible arena for artists and curators.
