Augsburg Exhibit at American Swedish Institute

This week is your last chance to visit the Augsburg-designed exhibit "Shaping Peace: A Visual, Interactive Exploration of The Nobel Peace Prize." The exhibit closes on May 24.

A group of 128 Augsburg students and six faculty members collaborated to create this interactive installation, which is part of an even larger Nobel-themed exhibit at the American Swedish Institute. Since it opened, more than 5,000 visitors have viewed our Auggies' hard work.

By creating a visual exploration of the past 128 Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Shaping Peace attempts to broaden the awareness of this prestigious prize. The project was an interdisciplinary collaboration including Art and Design, English, Political Science, and Religion.

The American Swedish Institute is located at 2600 Park Avenue in Minneapolis. Visit for more info.
