The Short story
Bjorn Wiinblad had a dream of transforming the Blue House into an open Museum. The dream have taken quite some work to get to where it is today. In 2011 the board established contact to Kirsten Meldgaard and Mette Vinding who generated a number of initiatives to support the activities in the Blue House.
René Schultz were engaged to guide in the museum - a first hand witness to who Bjorn was, how he worked and stories from his many travels around the world. Soon we found three of Bjorns painting girls, Rigmor, Jette and Lippen who right away sat down and painted the original Bjorn Wiinblad art, as if they have never done anything else.
We also have the pleasure of Eva Schultz and Lonni Groenvall in our working group.
Much has happend and still does: we have approx. 4000 guided visitors in The Blue House every year, we have a beauteful shop in the house, a webshop has been made, we searching income and other funding for the museum's realization just as Bjorn - as we - wish for The Blue House.
We can continue, but please come and visit us and we will give you the whole story.
