Signs of Swedish Roots in North America

Photographs by Nikolas Werngren













On loan from the American Swedish Institute, this exhibit offers a unique photographic documentary of the Swedish heritage in North America. ‘Signs of Swedish Roots in North America’ is a different and original view of the pioneering days of Swedish settlement and a living reminder of the thousand of sites and settlements from Alberta to Wyoming to Connecticut founded by Swedish explorers and pioneers. Artist and author Nikolas Werngren traveled across the continent photographing and interviewing the descendents of the original settlers and those who came after. He provides an engaging document of the survival and transmission of Swedish heritage.
