Vesterheim, the National Norwegian-American Museum and Folk Art School, is excited to pair the Innovators and Inventors exhibit with a free lecture series that brings together some of the most creative and inspiring Norwegian-American leaders, thinkers, and artists working today. This webinar is open to the public, but registration is required.
For this program, Vesterheim welcomes Rick Steves - a popular public television host, a best-selling guidebook author, and an outspoken activist who encourages Americans to broaden their perspectives through travel. He is the founder and owner of Rick Steves' Europe, a travel business with a tour program that brings more than 30,000 people to Europe annually. Rick lives and works in his hometown of Edmonds, Washington, where his office window overlooks his old junior high school.
Innovators and Inventors exhibition and lecture series is sponsored by the Tomson Family Foundation. Find out more about the exhibit at vesterheim.org.
