Vesterheim is excited to pair the Innovators & Inventors exhibit with a free lecture series that will bring together some of the most creative and inspiring Norwegian-American leaders, thinkers, and artists working today.

After a career as a studio artist in Norway, Anna Eide joined Corning Glass Works in 1987 as head of the design team for Corning’s Corelle, Pyrex, and CorningWare brands. Eide was responsible for numerous design innovations, including square plates, embossed designs, and Corelle’s best-ever selling design, called Country Cottage. Eide designed new lines for U. S. department stores and developed new markets in Japan and Korea.

Innovators & Inventors exhibition and lecture series is sponsored by the Tomson Family Foundation. Find out more about the exhibit here.
