CT: Sisu and Creativity Exhibition

The Connecticut Historical Society (CHS) is partnering with the Finnish American Heritage Society (FAHS) based in Canterbury, CT to present art works, images, and documentation of the community’s history from the FAHS archives, one of the largest Finnish collections in the country.

“Sisu and Creativity: Finnish American Heritage in Connecticut” explores Finnish history in Connecticut – the agricultural cooperatives; the built environment including farms, barns, and community halls; the saunas constructed by every family as a social gathering place; and artistic and musical traditions still practiced throughout the community.
