The building

Ålgården was from the beginning a mill that was founded in the 17th century. For some time the main building was used as a waterwork before it in 1960 became a museum for the collection Roland Kempe donated to the city of Borås. After the collection was moved to Borås Art Museum the building was empty for a few years before Borås printmaking workshop took over in 2000. In spring 2001 the first exhibition was held and since then a lot of exhibitions has been showed by both national and international artists.
