How did the birch tree painters Mats Persson Stadig and Gop Erik Danielsson communicate when one of them was deaf? What did the play sand painter Larshans Per Persson's violin look like? Often in history, it is only high-ranking people that we come across in life. When it comes to a couple of the historic valley painters, however, we get a chance to approach ordinary farmers. Through sketchbooks, personal objects – and of course paintings – we get to know some of the people behind the valley paintings. 

Meet the museum's antiquities, which tell about cultural-historical themes and show objects from the Dalarna museum's collections. We start with a cup of tea and a cake, then a lecture and finally we take a closer look at some selected objects from the museum's collections.

The mine has had a decisive importance for Falubygden. It has meant that people had more opportunities to make a living than elsewhere. The efficiency improvements of the 1500th century meant that more people settled at Falan. Eventually, Falun received city rights and the place was organized. Those who settled here were miners, workers and traders. We archaeologists have documented the traces of their homes and lives, and Eva Carlsson will tell you about it.

Lush gourd bits from valley painters in Leksand and Rättvik are familiar to everyone. But how did Rättvik painters paint at the homes of their main customers, the big farmers in Hälsingland? What do we know about how the farming population painted in southern Dalarna - and what is the situation with Falun's many but often overlooked painters? 

In the theme day New perspectives on valley painting we look at valley painting in a broader perspective, from the horizons of both Dalarna and Hälsingland. Come and learn more about the diversity of Dalarna's interior painting, its materials, expression and distribution. Maybe valley painting is more than you thought!

Jewish traces in the history of Dalarna

This is the first proper study carried out on the historical presence of the Jewish minority in Dalarna. And it offers interesting content. When the study was initiated through a discussion between Region Dalarna's Culture and Education Administration and Dalarna's museum about one of the national minorities' presence in the region, it was clear that it was an opportunity to go through and strengthen a state of knowledge about part of Dalarna's history that has been quite lean. For a cultural history museum, it is part of society's mission to explore the past and convey to the outside world what is found. The connections between yesterday, today and tomorrow are part of everyday life, as well as the fact that knowledge and learning have an obvious place in our community.

Read the full study here.
