The play Helene S and musical The sound of Music are advertised in the lobby. “In the artwork Julie Andrews and Mona Lisa on the Top of the Wonderful Austrian Alps the artist combines two icons of different eras, Mona Lisa and Julie Andrews, in a symphatetic and humoristic way”. (Marja Louni, intendant of Kuopio Art Museum)
