A group exhibition featuring artwork created by MSSU art and design students enrolled in the Spring 2018 International Art Seminar. This course culminated in a trip over spring break to study the art, culture, and landscape of Norway. The students traveled to Oslo, Flam, and Bergen, visiting art and cultural museums, national treasures, and historic sites. Students also participated in numerous cultural dinners and both coastal and inland fjord tours. The works of art created for this show were inspired by each student's experiences throughout the trip. The students aim to express the history, landscape, and aesthetic of Norway within their art. They want the show to represent the beauty and culture of Norway in every aspect of their pieces. 

The exhibition includes works of art by MSSU art and design majors Brett Dorrance, Jenson Maydew, Hunter Mills, Amber Wagner, Cicily Atkinson, and Susan Griffith. The trip was led by Dr. Christine Bentley, associate professor of art and design.
