Although the opening was delayed by a massive winter storm last week, the Florence Academy of Art in New York City is ready to open an amazing group exhibition featuring alumni, students, and instructors from its branch in Sweden.
The anticipation will only build now that The Florence Academy of Art’s “Scandinavian Artists of the FAA” exhibition has been delayed. Originally scheduled to open on January 24, a winter storm that slammed the Eastern seaboard caused organizers to push the opening to February 1.

Per the exhibition’s press release, “Norway, Denmark, and Sweden have contributed some of the greatest artists to have worked within the figurative tradition. From Anders Zorn to Edvard Munch, we celebrate the significance of Scandinavian art by showcasing paintings from our Scandinavian alumni, students, and instructors from our FAA Sweden branch.”
