The second in an annual series of art shows, exploring individual communities through the eyes of artists. Since the Center for the Art is located in Wyoming, this was the logical first project.This year, it will be Our Town - the Lindstrom Project

Our Town - the Lindstrom Project

Each year, a different town will be showcased.

This is an invitation to all artists in all mediums to come and explore the City of Lindstrom, then participate in this unique exhibit with artistic creations inspired by this town.

Our Town - the Lindstrom Project

This second in an annual series of exhibits featuring artwork inspired by a community will open at the Hallberg Center for the Arts on June 22, 2017.

With overwhelming support and interest from the City of Lindstrom, their chamber, and the council, we decided this second exhibition just had to be, "the Lindstrom Project".

Artwork inspired by the City of Lindstrom, MN.


In 1853, Daniel Lindström left Sweden in search of a nice piece of land to settle in America. Lindström was platted in 1880. The town of Lindström was incorporated in 1894. Many other Swedish emigrants traveled with Daniel Lindström. Joris Per Anderson, half brother to Daniel Lindström, came in 1850 leading a party from Hassela, Sweden. In the party was Erik Norelius, whose personal journals in part formed the basis of Vilhelm Moberg’s novels of the Swedish emigration to the United States, The Emigrants. Moberg's novels have two main characters, Karl Oskar and Kristina Nilsson. The novels depict the hardships Swedish emigrants endured en route to America. A bronze statue of the author, holding his bicycle as if ready to ride away, stands on a stepped platform in Chisago City’s town park. An image of Karl Oskar and Kristina remains Lindström’s logo today. Since 1990, anyone who has taken U.S. Highway 8 from north of Forest Lake to Lindström has driven on the Moberg Trail.

Lindström celebrates Karl Oskar and Kristina annually with Karl Oskar Days. This event takes place mid-July and includes such activities as the coronation of a "Karl Oskar Princess", parades, a street dance, and fireworks. There are still statues of Karl Oskar and Kristina in Lindström, as a tribute to the early Swedish immigrants whose descendants continue to populate the area. These statues are the main attraction for tourists from all over the world who come to Lindström because of its Swedish heritage.

Lindström was settled predominantly by Swedish immigrants and their families.

We are inviting all artists, members or not, to submit their artwork, visual and performed, and be a part of this unique exhibit.
