Tue, Mar 4th, 2014
Posted in All Arts & Culture

DECORAH, Iowa— Think Spring! Kari Aasen and Eli Veim, two of the artists who created of the exhibition “Flora Metamorphicae,” on view now at Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, will make a return trip to Decorah the week of March 10.



On Tuesday, March 11, from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. join the artists in the gallery for a special Vesterheim Member Appreciation Event. Light refreshments will be served. Not a museum member? Join at the event, online at vesterheim.org, or by calling 563-382-9681.



Also on Tuesday, March 11, from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m., Aasen and Veim will give a presentation about their work with “Flora Metamorphicae” and their current projects. This presentation will be held at Vesterheim's Amdal-Odland Heritage Center and is open to the public.



Sponsored by the American Scandinavian Foundation, The Iowa Arts Council, Sons of Norway Foundation, Sons of Norway Valdres Lodge in Decorah, Joseph Keiger, and Dan Huebner, “Flora Metamorphicae” is a remarkable project created by six contemporary Norwegian artists, who are all educated ceramacists based in the Bergen, Norway, region.



Just as each of the 4,000 flowers is unique, each installation of “Flora Metamorphicae” is unique, depending upon the setting. Every installation is created by at least two of the artists, who take inspiration for the configuration from the space and potential audiences. Since 2003, the group of artists has had installations around the world, both indoors and outdoors, including Sweden, Finland, Latvia, France, The Netherlands, and South Korea. Vesterheim Museum is one of the first venues for “Flora Metamorphicae” in the United States.



During this visit to Decorah, the artists will also participate in workshops for area teachers and Luther College Art Education students. Area K-12 art teachers are invited to join Vesterheim, ArtHaus, and the “Flora” artists for a special teacher workshop on Wednesday, March 12, 1:00 - 6:00 p.m. The workshop will include time for exploration, reflection, and hands-on creativity. The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required. Registration deadline is March 3. Please contact Jennifer Kovarik at 563-382-9681, ext. 219, or jkovarik@vesterheim.org to register.
