EIGHT SEASONS ABOVE THE ARCTIC CIRCLE
On exhibit in the Museum Gallery is “Eight Seasons Above the Arctic Circle,” a new exhibition featuring photographer Birgitte Aarestrup’s journey among the Sámi people. The Sámi are from Sápmi, also known as Lapland, a region that extends across Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia, encompassing a vast area of mountainous and forested country, tundra, and wetlands. The only European indigenous group to be formally recognized as aboriginal, the Sámi are renowned for their exquisite crafts and reindeer herding. The exhibit includes nearly 40 photographs that provide a rare and evocative window into the Sámi landscape and life ways. More information.
