In the public foyer there are two works by the artist Osmo Rauhala: The Sound of Snow (owned by the OKO Art Foundation) and Refrain (owned by Kuhmon Osuuspankki). Outside are Jaana Bombin’s sculpture The Woman and the Gate and, just by the lake, there are two concrete bears by Esko Määttä, Maltti and Viltti.

The fanfare to announce the start of the performances at the Arts Centre was composed by Aulis Sallinen and is played by trumpeter Stephen Burns.
