“Part of the current art collection is housed in an old shirt factory in Herning. This 1960s building was designed in the form of a shirt collar. It was the interaction between the factory owner and Arte Povera artists such as Piero Manzoni that enabled such a special collection of art to exist in Herning.” – Steven Holl
