Join us for a free evening of crafts and activities for the whole family in celebration of our new exhibit, “Mapping Empty Spaces.” Reservations are recommended and can be made via email. This temporary exhibit presents a modern look at immigrants’ stories both past and present. In this debut, Swedish artist Peter Hammar reexamines some universal questions about past and present, loss and gain, absence, selective memory, myths and popular Swedish culture through his mixed media pieces and installations. The festivities kick off at 4 p.m. this Friday.

The dinner discussion will focus on the development of the different strains of Scandinavian language and culture. Reservations can be made online now.
In the coming months, the newly-delivered fiberglass sibling to the original Dala Horse will be painted live at the Museum by artist Greg Gaw. Call ahead to see if the artist is at the Museum or take a chance and drop on in. Once the painting of the replica is complete, the new Dala Horse will be placed at the original Dala Horse’s home on the corner of Clark and Farragut, while the old Dala Horse takes on the new task of greeting Museum guests at our entrance.
