  2. Red Barn Studio Artist-in-Residence: Fiber artist, Shin-hee Chin of McPherson, KS

    Shin-hee Chin originally from South Korea came to the United States in 1988. She says, “While this project has undergone several evolutions, ultimately, it sets out to explore the potential mixtures or cultural hybridization. The medium I chose, as well as the method I used to link it, reflect how I have come to view my identity and American culture. As I begin to see my ‘Asianness,’ not as intrinsic and immutable, but rather in constant flux, I conceive American culture as being molded by its carriers into new arrangements. The primary goal of the project is to produce several quilts by using old quilts which I obtained from friends and thrift shops. The slow, repetitive nature of stitching enables me to be more mindful of the present of time and the passage of time. I symbolically partake in creating a new synthesis, not as a passive and silenced woman but as an active maker of my own culture.”

  4. St. Lucia Day

    December 9, All Day

    In the midst of famine, during the darkness and misery of winter, Lucia was said to have steered a ship shining with light and filled with food across the waters of Lake Vänern in the province of Värmland, saving the people of Sweden from starvation. The eldest daughters of Swedish families wake early on December 13th to serve saffron buns, ginger cookies and coffee to her family. She wears a white gown with a red sash and a crown of lingonberry branches with seven lit candles. The greenery and light represents new life during the Winter Solstice. This favorite Swedish holiday tradition, is observed in Lindsborg on the second weekend in December. Join us in celebrating the St. Lucia festival. The day begins at 10:00 a.m. with live holiday music downtown. A processional of girls in white, carrying candles and stjärngosse (star boys) lead the crowd to Bethany Lutheran Church where the annual St. Lucia is crowned. The new Lucia goes among the crowd serving ginger cookies and coffee.
