A recent addition to the Clausen Memorial Museum are these rosemaled panels installed on our outdoor gazebo, where visitors enjoy having a bright and cheerful place to stop and rest. The Muskeg Maleriers painted both the "Velkommen" sign and the flower panel in the Os style of rosemaling, or "rose painting," a distinctive style that surfaced in eastern Norway around 1750. It features fanciful flowers and bright colors rather than scrolls and is considered a newer style of rosemaling. A portion of the work was donated to the Museum by the Maleriers
