Minnesota Originals – Sami Calendar

Uncategorized | Comments Off

A talented lithographer, Kurt Seaberg is also known for his intricate line drawings of the Sami people, the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia. What began as a way to connect with his father’s work and his own culture has now become a useful education tool; these detailed images are combined with bilingual historical facts and dates into an annual calendar that has even been employed by some schools in Norway and Sweden.

An active member of the Highpoint Center for Printmaking since 2003, Seaberg’s Sami works were presented alongside his lithographic prints in the Osher Gallery in the Nelson Cultural Center of the American Swedish Institute in early 2013.
