Online Curator Talk – Cori Sherman North
January 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Cori Sherman North, Curator of the Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg, KS will talk about the traveling exhibit “Art for All” that opens today in the Main Gallery.
“Art for All” features paintings, drawings, and prints by prominent Swedish-American artists working in the late 19th and early 20th century held in the collections of the Sandzén Gallery and the Hillstrom Museum of Art. Many Swedish artists who came to America brought with them a newly instilled democratic attitude toward art, codified in the motto “art for all” and promulgated by Konstnärsförbundet (Artists’ League) that was formed in 1886 in Stockholm, which sprung from a desire to modernize the Swedish Royal Academy and its attitudes.
Friday, Jan 14, 6pm-7pm.
