The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County and the Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists have brought a new exhibit to the museum at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead, The FMVA’s Annual Constraint Show, now in its 5th year.
This year’s show features the theme Labels, which challenged many of the artists to think about the labels in our society and what that means to them. Each artist interpretation is impressive and unique, they represent the variety of labels in our world but also the fabulous artist we have right here, in our own community. Throughout this exhibit you will see two and three-dimensional works with a wide variety of interpretations.
The FMVA is also hosting an Opening Reception on Nov. 4 from 5-7pm to celebrate the new exhibit; this event is free and open the public.
Pangea—Cultivate Our Cultures is a free, indoor, one-day, family friendly celebration of the tremendous cultural diversity in the Moorhead-Fargo community held at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead, MN, November 8, 2014 from 10am-4pm. The festival draws community members together to learn about each other through sharing their artistic and cultural traditions.
NEH presents an exploration of homes throughout various points in history and culture in America, from army barracks to two story colonials. The exhibit allows us to explore the meanings of where and how we live from home furnishings constructions materials and many other aspects that make up not only a house but also, a home.
This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road,
a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
It has been adapted and is being toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance.
House & Home was organized by the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C.,
and curated by Sarah Leavitt. Additional support was provided by the Home Depot Foundation.
