Finlandia University’s collection of paintings, drawings, sketches and research materials by Gerald Immonen has great significance for the university. “We truly value our role as stewards of Finnish American art and culture. The Finnish American Heritage Center houses North America’s largest collection of Finnish-American artwork and Gerald Immonen’s artwork is now a centerpiece of that collection,” says Finlandia University Gallery Director Carrie Flaspohler.
The collection was donated to the university by Gerry’s wife Delight Immonen, “We are grateful to Gerry’s family for recognizing the importance of his artwork to the Finnish American community and for honoring his heritage through this donation to the Finnish American Heritage Center,” continues Flaspohler.
