Current Exhibit: The Creative Impulse: Artists from North Dakota and the Broader Region
February 28 - April 12, 2017 - Free opening reception Tuesday, February 28, 4:30-7 p.m.
This exhibition invites the viewer to contemplate whether the arts are just a frill or a necessary part of human life. The show provides an historical overview of art from the region.

Interestingly, five UND presidents, including current president Mark Kennedy, are included too. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
