Drott Lodge Cultural Leader, Marit Knollmueller, will present a talk with images from her recent trip to Sweden on the history of the groundbreaking institution known as “Skansen.” Marit has a graduate degree from NYU in Museum Studies and has worked in the art/museum world. This presentation will consider the historic contribution that this first open-air museum has made to our very conception of museums and their scope of mission which became a model followed in miniature by ALL of the other nordic countries and in varying manifestations more recently in the USA and around the world.

The Presentation will be followed by a Drott Lodge business meeting with the installation of new members and a review of feedback and possible changes for our Christmas Bazaar season.
