Nicolet College - Trekking Norway, Diversity in Art, Kids Books events all free in Nov.
Creative Arts Series to feature
three free events in November
The Nicolet College Creative Arts Series will feature three free events in November that will give people the opportunity to trek vicariously through Norway, explore the concepts of tolerance and diversity in an art exhibit, and delve into the world of children’s books.
The three free events are:
Pilgrim Trekking Norway with Mark Nienstaedt
7:30 p.m., Tues, Nov. 16,
Experienced pilgrim trekker Mark Nienstaedt walked the “Way of St. Olav,” a 650-kilometer route across Norway traveled since medieval times by pilgrims seeking the comfort of Saint Olav Haraldsson, who brought Christianity to Norway and unified the country as King Olav II. Mark invites you to follow in his footsteps across a country steeped in historical, physical and spiritual richness, and discover where a mountain trail can lead the modern pilgrim’s heart. Mark’s slideshow and narration explores contemporary Norwegian life as seen from country lanes and pathways and reflects upon the role of the pilgrimage in our own times.
Nicolet Open: Tolerance, Diversity and Coexistence
Nov. 20 to Dec. 15
Nicolet Art Gallery
Artwork will reflect upon the themes associated with the Campus & Community Read of the graphic novel Persepolis. Tolerance, diversity and coexistence are interpreted by each contributing artist and are represented in a variety of mediums in this non-juried exhibit. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Michele Regenold: Kids Books Why Grown-Ups Should Bother
6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 30
Tomahawk Public Library
Michele Regenold, English instructor at Nicolet College and aspiring children’s novelist, discusses why books for kids and teens are relevant to adult readers.

The Nicolet College Theatre and Art Gallery are located in the Learning Resources Center on the Rhinelander campus, one mile south of the city just off of Hwy. G. The Tomahawk Public Library is located at 300 W. Lincoln Ave., in Tomahawk.
