American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, MN

Rooster, acrylic/graphite, 48x48", 2014

Three Minneapolis design powerhouses, Forage Modern WorkshopBlu Dot and The Foundry Home Goods have collaborated to assemble a very special room of The American Swedish Institute's "Christmas By Design" exhibit. I'm thrilled that my "Rooster" painting was chosen to accompany their gorgeously designed room:

Stunning during the daytime...

Magical and glow-y at night...

"An “Only in Minnesota” holiday experience, the beloved ASI Christmas Rooms celebrate the holiday traditions of the five Nordic countries (Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden) in ornately decorated rooms throughout Turnblad Mansion. 

The 2014 Christmas Rooms celebrate “Christmas By Design” with a look at how design plays a role in creating holiday traditions, and how these traditions influence modern design.  Featured Nordic designers include Swedish glass artist Ingalena Klenell and Arne Jacobsen of Denmark. This year, a sixth holiday room celebrates local design in Minnesota showcasing how Scandinavian design has influenced design in the state, with works by Blu Dot, Forage Modern Workshop, and The Foundry Home Goods of Minneapolis."

Stop by if you're in the area. It's a delightful place. (AND- while you're there you can eat at Fika!)
