Kjarvalsstofa was set up in the Fjarðarborg community centre in summer 2002. Jóhannes Sveinsson Kjarval grew up in Geitavík in Borgarfjörður and had deep roots there. The Kjarvalsstofa museum seeks to portray “Jói in Geitavík”, as Kjarval was referred to by the locals, and to show his ties to his roots. Kjarvalsstofa also features photography exhibitions and has a special children's area for young up-and-coming artists.
