You will see a special exhibit about Scandinavian culture with ties to Door County at the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay beginning this Saturday. "Scandinavian American: Photography by National Geographic Explorer Erika Skogg" will open to the public, and feature 24 photographs depicting lifestyle, celebrations, and ethnic traditions around the Midwest. Miller Art Museum Executive Director Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead says Skogg, a native of Door County, received a special grant to fund the project.
Besides the Scandinavian imagery, the exhibit will feature 14 photographs from Skogg’s travel collection from Morocco, Norway, Germany, Cuba, and Columbia. There will also be eight other images depicting Door County’s 1933 Cherryland agritourism by National Geographic Photographer Maynard Owen Williams. The exhibition is scheduled to open to the public on Saturday, July 24 at 10 am, and an in-person opening reception will be held from 5 – 6:30 pm.
