20 KODE 1 Museum in Bergen, Norway

Anchoring the south end of Byparken is the West Norway Museum of Decorative Art. Permanenten Vestlandske Kunstindustrimuseum focuses on crafts – including glass, porcelain and textiles – spanning 500 years. Another permanent exhibit is the Silver Treasure (Sølvskatten). The largest part of the collection is over 2,500 Chinese artifacts and artworks. There are also paintings by Old Masters called the Singer Collection. Permanenten merged with KODE Art Museums in 2012 and is now called KODE 1. Framing the museum in this photo is Sæverudmonumentet. The abstract sculpture was created by Bernar Venet in 2000. It is a tribute to Harald Sæverud. He was an accomplished composer of piano music and symphonies during the 20th century.
