Rosemaling Demonstration


Learn the Norwegian art of Rosemaling (or decorative painting) by watching Eileen Halverson demonstrate at the Old Courthouse Museum from 1:00 – 4:00pm. Stop in any time during the demonstration to observe or ask questions.

Throughout the upper-Midwest, Norwegian immigrants brought this style of painting with them as a decoration on trunks and household items. The colors are bold, designs elaborate, and items became true works of art.
