101 Bowls is an ambitious, wildly creative and one-of-a-kind collage of local and international handmade vessels that showcase the work of more than 101 different artists and organizations that ASI intersects with. It includes works in many mediums, and many organizations and institutions.
The installation attempts to showcase ASI's connection with the far-ranging Nordic and other networks that foster and propagate handmade diversity.
There are four sections exploring ASI's enduring links to the Nordic region, leadership in the arts and cultural community, stewardship of heritage and promotion of craftmanship.
The sections of bowls represented are:
- Nordic + Sweden: vessels that represent ongoing ties to Sweden and the Nordic region.
- Art + Culture + Community: reflecting the dynamic arts and cultural scene of Minnesota and the region.
- Craft + Maker: represents artists and organizations that ASI is connected to.
- Culture + Heritage: representing the efforts that ensure the continuity of Scandinavian cultural identity and heritage.
Tia's BOSOM BOWL is included in the Art + Culture + Community section.
