UND Art Collections Gallery at the Empire
The Creative Impulse: Artists from North Dakota and the Broader Region
February 28, 2017 - April 12, 2017
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. While focused on professional artists, this show also features works by self taught artists, demonstrating that the need to make art often extends beyond the professional art world. 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.
