American Swedish Historical Museum
See Stockholm like you’ve never seen the city before! Did you know that there are at least eight towns in the Unites States named Stockholm? Most of the towns are now sparsely populated, often desolate, beautiful resorts that do not have much in common with Stockholm in Sweden. Yet, they all pay homage to the great capital city in Sweden.
Come to ASHM this fall and discover the landscapes and people of each town when you visit our upcoming exhibition, United Stockholms of America, a beautiful, large-format photography exhibition by Swedish photographer, Charlie Bennet, photographing and documenting the wildly varying degrees of Swedishness that they embody.
Join us for the opening of United Stockholms of America on September 13 at 4:30pm, where there will be light refreshments. The exhibition will be on view through February 28, 2016. Don’t miss this extraordinary photo documentary series about the Swedes who stayed!
