Regional Folk Art: Creativity, Identity and Community-Live Artist Demonstration by John Pahlas (metal/sculpture) and Children's Craft Station

John Pahlas demonstrates metal/sculpture. MHAHS will debut a folk art-based exhibit that will include a variety of ethnic artifacts representing the people and traditions of Norway, Switzerland, Ireland, Scotland, and even a dabbling of Scotch-Yankee. The exhibit spans the spectrum from first-generation keepsakes to 20th century tourist trinkets and is designed to spark contemplation on art as a reflection of individual and community identity, a topic that is especially appropriate given the Mount Horeb area's well-known dynamic and colorful ethnic personality (i.e. "Troll Capital of the World"!). Several value-added components will augment the installation, including an interactive ebook kiosk, exhibit catalog and artist demonstrations with concurrent children's activity table.
