Knowing Anders Zorn – Afternoon Lecture

Anders Zorn, world famous artist from Dalarna, gave us iconic paintings that immortalize beautiful Swedish landscapes and traditions. Did you know that he also noticed that folk music was dwindling in popularity at the turn of the last century? He therefore took action and created the Zorn Badge, intending to reinvigorate Swedish folk music by recognizing and awarding accomplished folk musicians. Come and learn more about Anders Zorn, the artist, the person, and the innovative thinker, as we explore his artistic work, his home province of Dalarna, and his impact upon the folk music traditions of Sweden that flourish to this day.

There is a morning and an evening session of this lecture. See morning lecture: Tue, August 30, 10–11:30 am
