July Member Frokost

Norway House members are invited for a special breakfast series in the Kaffebar every month!

This exclusive Norway House member event aims to provide a social platform for supporters of Norway House and Norwegian culture to meet in the spirit of community and the opportunity to share a unique and tasty piece of Nordic culture.

Enjoy a complimentary breakfast spread, get your morning "kaffe" fix, and peruse the current exhibition gallery before Norway House opens up for the day. We encourage our members to invite friends and acquaintances to this event as prospective members. Simply purchase the $7.00 "Friend" ticket for your buddy! We will also be accepting cash or card payments at the front entrance.

This month, we are offering a walk through of our latest photography exhibit, Mother, led by our Director of Exhibitions and Programming Max Stevenson.

Judy Olausen’s personal project developed into a best-selling and influential book, Mother, published in 1996, broke a sales record at The New York Times.  It is also a loving tribute to her mother, Vivian, who modeled for the images, and took the artist four years to complete. Quoted in Harper’s, Olausen described her mother as part of “…a forgotten generation of women who put their kids and husbands before their own needs and hovered in the background, like furniture.” 

You are heartily invited to experience the detailed scenes and humor guaranteed to make you smirk.
