National Nordic Museum to reopen on Sept. 4

With Gov. Jay Inslee’s new reopening guidance for museums and bowling alleys, the National Nordic Museum has announced it will be able to reopen its doors on Sept. 4.

In accordance with both state and local health guidelines, the Nordic will require all visitors to purchase a timed ticket ahead of visiting the museum. All patrons will be allowed to stay for a maximum of two hours, and will be required to wear masks and follow directional pathways through the exhibits.

Here’s a map of the directional pathways in place:

Before it closed in March, the featured exhibit “Gudrun Sjödén—A Colourful Universe” was scheduled to open. It’s now been extended To October 18.

Here’s more about the exhibit, from the Nordic:

The exhibition title “Gudrun Sjödén—A Colourful Universe” references a 40-year career retrospective of this designer. Sjödén cites French artist Henri Matisse’s bright, brilliant canvases and Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s eclectic, vibrant personal style as influences. The exhibition will takes visitors through the sources of her inspiration: nature and global folk art; her design process, which since the 1980s has started with the medium of watercolor; the manufacture and marketing of each collection; and her commitment to sustainable fashion for all women.

From Sept. 4, the museum will be open each week from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Gallery capacities will be limited to 25 percent until further notice.

This is exciting, I note that someone is already in line as they are camped out front on Market Street. They must want to be first in once the museum opens.

My husband and I were wondering if that was some kind of traditional Nordic shelter.

Makes sense, since Lutefisk might actually cure COVID.
