LETTERS FROM HOME
Swedish American Museum
April 21, 2023 - August 13, 2023
This exhibit is a collaborative contemporary art exhibit that will bring together artists in Sweden and Chicago to create original works interpreting a collection of early 20th century letters to Chicago immigrant Emil Olsson from his family in Sweden. This international exchange will produce new contemporary artwork interpreting themes present in the Olsson letters that relate to the early Swedish American immigrant experience from a variety of perspectives.
