Vesterheim Magazine Vol. 1, No. 2, 2003 - Incarnations
Vesterheim is published twice a year, featuring in-depth articles focusing on the museum's priceless collections of artifacts, Norwegian-American history and culture, and up-to-date information on all museum events, classes, tours, and education opportunities.
This issue showcases ways in which artists are continually inspired by significant collections of folk art like the one at Vesterheim. It includes Eldrid Arntzen's article on the role Vesterheim has played in American rosemaling, a fascinating look at the folklore tapestry designs of Gerhard Munthe, an article on weaver Nancy Jackson's works, and highlights of the exhibition Jewish Life and Culture in Norway: Wergeland's Legacy.
