Latvian Exhibit Nordic Heritage Museum
- I haven't made it into the exhibit yet but I hear there are quite a few
mittens included in this collection. Can't wait to see them !
The Latvians: Fifty Years in the State of Washington
Friday, June 6, 2008 to Sunday, July 27, 2008
In the years following World War II, immigrants from the Baltic State
of Latvia found home and work in the state of Washington. Photographs,
textiles, folk costumes and and fine art tell the story of the 50-year
history of their daily lives, work, and accomplishments, and the
cultural traditions they have kept alive in their new home.
- I was just at the Museum this morning to see the Latvian exhibit and I
LOVED it !!! The wall of mittens is fab and the little tiny mittens are
so cute. The embroidered pieces, folk costumes, weavings, jewelry, etc..
are fantastic. I'm going to have to go three or four more times just to
soak in all that exquisite handiwork !
