ROSA HUSET | Rosa Huset – ‘the Pink House’ – was built as apartments in 1862, and was one of the first buildings to be constructed when Skövde began to grow with the opening of the railway. Today, the house is a hive of art and creativity, as Galleri Lucifer, KAC-Kulturarbetscentrum, Skövde Konstgrafiska and Skaraborgs Konstgrafiska Verkstad all run their operations from the building. In addition to courses and member activities, there are also occasional art exhibitions and popular summer evenings with food and music are held in the courtyard.
