Art by Sigelle

Art by Sigelle at American Swedish Historical Museum is an exhibition of multimedia artworks by Stockholm-born Sigrid Elisabeth Lindforss. Sigelle (a combination of her first and middle names), was a trained opera singer, music teacher, and artist who regularly created vibrant works of color and collage.

Art by SIGELLE will be complemented by a space in the gallery devoted to art making, where visitors are encouraged to discover their own creative side. One of the primary goals is to inspire children’s engagement with, and enjoyment of, Sigelle’s use of color, pattern, and common materials. Visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to express themselves visually and play with color, shape, texture, and line using interesting art supplies, suggested techniques/projects, and other educational tools. Children will have the chance to hang their colorful creations for other museum visitors to enjoy.

Come see this visual exhibition, explore your artistic possibilities, and create your own unique configurations inspired by the artwork on display. The exhibition opening is free with museum admission and refreshments will be served. For more information please call the museum at (215) 389-1776 or email info@americanswedish.org.

The American Swedish Historical Museum is located in scenic FDR Park at 1900 Pattison Avenue in South Philadelphia near the Sports Complex.  Plenty of free parking is available. For those taking public transportation, the Broad Street Subway’s AT&T/Pattison Avenue stop is within walking distance or SEPTA’s Route 17 (Naval Base) can bring you right to the Museum.
