In 2022 Vasaloppet USA will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary as a cross country ski race. The Vasaloppet appreciates and depends upon the community’s volunteer spirit for its success. To commemorate this milestone, hundreds of volunteers faces and hand prints will be copied, cast into metal and used in a larger sculpture to be ready before Vasaloppet’s Golden Anniversary.
Vasaloppet is inviting any volunteer who has donated his/her service or provided items/financial support between 1973 to the present to become part of this art project.Volunteers will be scheduled to have their face or hands casted during the summer of 2018.
The first phase of the Many Faces of Vasaloppet is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council thanks to legislative appropriations from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
