Seward Arts & Culture

Arts & Cultural Activities in the Seward Neighborhood — Minneapolis, Minnesota


Vine Arts Center: Kimber Fiebiger & Bruce Nygren

Exhibit dates: April 13 – April 27, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday April 13, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Two south Minneapolis artists combine sculpture and painting to give us a light hearted view of their art.

Kimber is known for her gallery and studio, Joan of Art, on East Franklin Avenue, featuring the bronze Humpty Dumpty sculptures.

Bruce Nygren, south Minneapolis painter whose images are realistic yet whimsical.


Kimber Fiebiger creates bronze sculptures that range from fun and whimsical, to classical and contemporary. She lives in Minneapolis yet her sculptures have been sold all over the country where she has won numerous awards.

Besides being a fabulous sculptor, Kimber has created a home/gallery/studio that will amaze and intrigue you upon viewing. Ask anyone who drives by her gallery at E Franklin and S 31st Avenues. Her building has been described as having the artful complexity of Spanish designer Antonie Gaudi combined with the surreal nature of Pablo Picasso. Her recent outdoor landscape brings to mind playful images of Dr. Seuss and the imagination of Lewis Carroll.


Bruce E. Nygren is a fine arts painter who works exclusively in oils on canvas, except for occasional murals and a bit of sculpture.

He lives in south Minneapolis and enjoys taking walks along the river with his dog. He has two sons and one grandson. Bruce also writes and performs blues and rock ‘n roll music with his band, the Mumble Bugs. Expect to hear some music during the duration of the show.
