The UNOG art collection
The UNOG art collection brings to life the prestigious cultural heritage held within the Palais des Nations. It comprises over 2,000 works dating from the League of Nations period to the present. Most of them are official donations of Member States.
The collection is a representation of artistic endeavour from all corners of the world. Within the collection, artists have captured key UN values such as peace, human rights and environmental issues. The artworks celebrate and commemorate the positive spirit that underpins the work of the Organization and International Geneva. From a heritage perspective, the collection is a unique and precious part of the story of internationalism that began in Geneva in 1919.
