Pack your scarf and mittens for a journey northward to the land of the midnight sun: Scandinavia. This exhibition features works from RPM’s collection from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Norway. Nearly thirty paintings, sculpture, textiles, etchings, photographs, jewelry, and decorative arts examples and posters will be featured in the exhibition. Portraits, stunning views of fjords and harbors, and the Aurora Borealis “northern lights” are just some of the subjects of the works of art. Artists such as Frits Thaulow (1847 – 1906), Anders Zorn (1860 – 1920), Frants Didrik Boe (1820 – 1891), and Hans Andreas Dahl (1849 – 1937), among others, will be included in the exhibition, which is on view in the Meinig Family Gallery.

The exhibition is a partnership between the Reading Public Museum and the Reading Symphony Orchestra, which is presenting “Scandinavian Dreams” in its 2018 – 2019 Season on Saturday, October 20 at 7:30 at Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading.
