Rosemaling Demonstration


Eileen Halverson will be demonstrating the Norwegian folk art of rosemaling (decorative painting) in the second floor hallway of the Old Courthouse Museum. Stop in any time during the afternoon for a demonstration and to 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 become true works of art.
