Art by artist Bo Englund
Bo Englund, originally from Munkfors but nowadays lives in Strängnäs, has worked as a sculptor since 1976. He works in bronze, clay, wood, iron and stone. In 2002 he donated a collection of sculptures to Munkfors municipality. Some of the sculptures are now a permanent exhibit at Laxholmen. In addition, there are also sculptures placed in and around Munkfors centre. The sculptures have themes such as Genisis and Yin-Yang. Bo has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Scandinavia, Germany and Italy. He is also represented in various city and county collections including Statens Konstråd (National Art council) and the Museum of Gotland.

In 2017, Munkfors municipality received another donation of sculptures by the artist and a Bo Englund scholarship was established.
During the summer of 2018, visitors can bid on these fine sculptures. All proceeds will go to the scholarship which is then awarded to someone who has contributed and made an effort for Munkfors municipality.
