The Vigeland Sculpture Arrangement is a permanent, open exhibition of the works of the brilliant Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland, located within an 80 acres area inside the Frogner Park in the borough of Frogner in Oslo, Norway. When the City of Oslo was forced to demolish the house of the celebrated artist, Vigeland was granted a new building from the city where he could work and live. In exchange, he promised to donate to the city all his subsequent works, including sculptures, drawings, engravings and models.

Vigeland moved to his new studio on Nobels gate in the borough of Frogner during 1924. Over the following twenty years, Vigeland was devoted to the project of an open exhibition of his works, which later turned into what is known as Vigeland Sculpture Arrangement in Frogner Park. Holding the record for being the largest sculpture park created by a single artist, Frogner Park's Vigeland Sculpture Arrangement features 212 bronze and granite sculptures all designed by Gustav Vigeland himself.
