For many years, Denmark’s strides in sustainability have been a source of pride for Danes and Danish-Americans alike. Many of the cultural values that pushed Denmark towards environmental protection and energy efficiency were brought across the ocean by immigrants, who often maintained a similar set of values in their new homes, adapting them to the American system. The exhibit Nature-Culture/Natur-Kultur aims to explore the intersection of Danish cultural values and environmental action, both historically and in the present day. It will seek to discuss topics on both sides of the ocean, exploring examples within Danish-American communities as well as continuing collaboration between the two countries. 

This exhibit will be open until November 3, 2024.

Support for this exhibition is provided by the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor, Humanities Iowa, Anna Thomsen Holliday, Roy & Patricia Hougen, and Marnie Jensen & Kenny Bogus.
