A Thunderstorm Experience
New Iceland Heritage Museum
Nature & outdoors
Create a thunderstorm! Participate, learn and enjoy the power of a thunderstorm in this audience-created phenomenon. Five independent artists join with the NIHM to present In Harmony: Land, Lake, Trees & Shore. These creative works focus on the ways in which we interact with our surroundings in a search for harmony within, with others, and with the environment. For this event, special guest Kevin Koroscil and artists will talk about the significance of thunder and lightening in Indigenous beliefs and about how all humans experience these storms. You, the audience, will create a thunderstorm before going on to take in the show of works by artists Gary Foidart, Gayle Halliwell, Moray McVey, Rosemary Miguez and Stephanie Sutton. Storms every 40 minutes beginning at 6:30 (6:30, 7:10, 7:50, 8:30).
This event is free.
