Show of Hands: Art in Education
May 2, 2019 @ 8:00 am - May 4, 2019 @ 3:00 pm
From May 2–4, 2019 the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Arts in the Upper Midwest project will be bringing Scandinavian and Scandinavian-American folk artists, scholars, and community members together for a symposium on Scandinavian traditional arts. Following last year’s successful World Record Symposium, which focused on Scandinavian and Scandinavian-American music in the Upper Midwest, the 2019 event will focus on material folk arts in the region. The symposium will include artist demonstrations of fiber arts, woodcarving, rosemaling, and more, as well as artist presentation panels covering topics such as apprenticeships, sustaining traditions, and folks arts in education. All events are free and open to the public and will be held at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin.
