It was created with the purpose of establishing and developing technical facilities within the professional graphic art field. The intention is to ensure, that the artists associated with the workshop have the best possible conditions for their creation of graphic art.
AIR-Vejle cooperates with Vejle Art Museum. Vejle Art Museum is a leader in graphic fine art / works on paper. The museum has a unique graphic art collection of about 20.000 works – the next largest collection of graphic art in Denmark.
