In the other section of Laxholmen you will find sculptures by Bo Englund, originally from Munkfors. Bo worked as a sculptor from 1976 to 2022. He worked 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 exhibition 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 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.
