A & S display

An Arts and Sciences Display will be arranged at Baronial Investiture. The display is for everyone who has unfinished or finished projects to show. You may participate in the display also without documentation. Viewers can bring their personal tokens or small gifts (beads, ribbons, coins, bags etc.) to lay beside the A&S display projects. Remember that this is not a competition and you are not voting for the best piece. Your token or gift is for the artist to know that his or hers project was admired! There will be also forms where viewers can write their comments about the display items. The exact spot to show your display items is announced at the event.

The display opens on Friday, August 31 and closes on Saturday before the feast, September 1. It would be desirable that those with items at display come to talk about their items at display hall on Saturday, September 1 at 11:00-12:00. All viewers are of course invited to profit from this rare chance to talk with the artisans. More information from Aarnimetsä Minister of Arts and Sciences, moas (at) aarnimetsa . org .
