arteum - Center for Sculpture

Vienna is known for its rich artistic heritage and numerous institutions dedicated to the study and appreciation of sculpture. In Vienna, there are several prominent institutions and academies that focus on sculpture and the visual arts. The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien) is one such institution, offering programs in sculpture and other artistic disciplines. The University of Applied Arts Vienna (Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien) also has departments dedicated to sculpture and fine arts.


Additionally, Vienna is home to numerous galleries, museums, and cultural centers that showcase sculpture and contemporary art. These include the Belvedere Palace, the Leopold Museum, and the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK), all of which feature significant collections of sculpture from various periods and artistic movements.


A museum dedicated to sculptures in Vienna is the arteum - Zentrum für Bildhauerei. "Zentrum für Bildhauerei" in German translates to the "Center for Sculpture." With a focus on stone sculpture, the arteum is a meeting place for artists and art lovers. In addition to the gallery and sculpture garden, a visit to the sculptor studios allows a look behind the scenes of the sculpture craft. Discover the fascinating world of sculpture: sculptures, sculptures and reliefs as well as objects in the process of being created. Besides, unlike at other museums, visitors are allowed to touch the art sculptures at the arteum making it accessible to blind and visually impaired people as well.
