Would you like to present holiday gifts this year that are wonderfully original, totally appreciated and perfectly unique? Give the work of South Dakota artists! You can choose from a multitude of gifts, specially selected for each name on your list. It’s easy to give the gift of South Dakota creativity. Choose a book by one of our state’s authors or photographers, jewelry created by one of our artisans, a framed print or painting by a South Dakota artist, or tickets to a special performance—all gifts that will be enjoyed throughout the year.
Gifts reflecting our state’s creative culture are not hard to find. Nearly every bookstore in South Dakota has an “in-state” or “regional” section, filled with our state’s writers sharing their stories, telling tales of the past or breaking new ground with exciting fiction or poetry. Museum gift shops are perfect spots to find South Dakota artists’ work, in an incredible range of prices, sizes, colors and subject matter. Galleries, both public and private, show and sell South Dakota visual arts. You can find furniture, sculpture, prints, drawings and notecards created here in South Dakota by your neighbors. And don’t forget albums and holiday performances by South Dakota musicians.
Honor the arts advocates in your life with a donation to Arts South Dakota in their name. You—and they—will be supporting our continuous effort to grow the arts, strengthen arts education and build our cultural community across the state.
Giving the gift of South Dakota art shows your support for the artists who are living and working in our state. And it makes South Dakota a place where artists are encouraged and can make a living. You enhance our cultural heritage, advance the appreciation of the arts and spark new ideas for the recipient. That’s quite an impactful holiday gift!
