Nobel Creations Inspires Creativity and Ingenuity in the U.S.

Nobel Creations: Inspired by the Nobel Prize has made its U.S. debut at the American Swedish Institute (ASI) in Minneapolis, MN, USA to much acclaim. Nobel Creations is presented as an immersive experience of visual arts and music throughout a one-hundred-year old castle built by Swedish immigrants Swan and Christina Turnblad on one of Minneapolis’ most famous boulevards.

The exhibit’s röd tråd of creativity has activated and engaged local designers and artists to explore the complicated theories and discoveries of the 2013 Nobel Laureates. Building on the fine work by the up-and-coming designers and composers from Beckmans’ College of Design and the Royal College of Music, ASI added an additional interpretation from local floral designers.

The Minneapolis fashion and design community responded to the exhibition by presenting a dynamic fashion show with its own twist on the Nobel prizes.
