The Visual Arts Center

The Visual Arts Center brings exhibitions of leading regional, national and international artists to its eight spacious galleries. Exhibits range from noted South Dakota artists to Andy Warhol and Rodin. The Visual Arts Center, accredited by the American Association of Museums, is dedicated to building, preserving and conserving its collections for both South Dakotans and worldwide audiences. The shows are rotated every few months, and community lectures and artist receptions are held throughout the year.

Several of the pieces in our Visual Arts Center are available for purchase. For more information, please contact the Curator at 605-731-2303 or
