The National Norwegian-American Folk Art Exhibition is a summer exhibition at Vesterheim in Decorah, Iowa. It showcases the self-expression of contemporary artists who create folk art rooted in Norwegian traditions. The mission of this exhibition is to celebrate the past, present, and future of folk art by encouraging and inspiring emerging and established folk artists to develop their craft. Artists submit work for evaluation by a team of judges, who offer feedback on their pieces and award ribbons to the very best work. The ribbons carry points that accumulate toward a Vesterheim Gold Medal.
