INBJUDAN för medierna: Esbos Nelli flyttar till Kalajärvi, torsdag 25.5 kl. 1811.5.2023 11:00:00 EEST | Kutsu

Bronsskulpturen Esbos Nelli som Kerttu Horila har designat för esboborna är EMMAs gåva till Esbo som fyller 50 år som stad. Verket avtäcktes på våren 2022 i Gäddvik. Skulpturen har designats för att vara flyttbar, och tanken är att den ska byta omgivning med jämna mellanrum. På det sättet kan den bli en del av vardagen för så många esbobor som möjligt. Nu flyttar Nelli till Saudarkrokurparken i Kalajärvi. Det är Esbo ungdomsfullmäktige som har valt ut platsen.
