“Bonader” Exhibit Opens

Swedish American Museum

About the Event:

One of the most remarkable examples of Scandinavian folk art is the painted picture indigenous to the Swedish peasant home. The commonly used name for these peasant paintings is bonader, and their provenance was to decorate the walls and ceilings of the homes at Christmas time and on feast days, thus adding a note of color and gaiety to the otherwise dark interiors.

This exhibit will be open until Jan. 12, 2020, 4 p.m.
