Featured 2024 Artist
Thomas Dambo

Trolls DL coming in 2024!

Danish recycle artist Thomas Dambo is on a mission to save the world from drowning in trash!

Dambo uses reclaimed wood and scraps from landfills to create giant statue-like trolls – unique characters, each with a story. He has already installed trolls in 17 countries throughout the world.

Thomas Dambo and his crew of artists will be in Detroit Lakes on May 6 for a month-long build of six giant troll sculptures made of recycled materials.

This is my biggest and most ambitious exhibition of my career.
I am so happy to have been given so much trust in my artistic decisions
and support from Project 412 and the Detroit Lakes community.
I am very excited to show you what is being stirred up.
