Calling ALL Artists for an Online Exhibition, Proof of Life
The Rapid City Arts Council (RCAC) is looking for artists to feature in an online exhibition, Proof of Life. The RCAC seeks to highlight artists who have been impacted in our area by displaying the work completed during this time in an online only exhibition. This online juried exhibition is open to all artists, over the age of 18, working in South Dakota and/or the Black Hills region. Artists are invited to submit work that they have completed since they became aware of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The intention of this exhibition is to show what our regional artists were working on during this global pandemic and how it may have affected their work. We’re not asking that these pieces be based on the pandemic, although that is certainly acceptable.
Depending on how long the crisis lasts, there may be additional, subsequent installments of the exhibition as artists will continue to adapt their practices to this new challenge.
The art work for this exhibition will go through a jurying process by Denise Du Broy, the Curator and Museum Director, and Jeannie Larson, the Assistant Curator.
On behalf of the Rapid City Arts Council, the Dahl staff, Board of Directors, and our volunteers, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and thank the City of Rapid City for their ongoing support of our organization. It is because of support like this that we are able to continue to fulfill our mission to champion inclusive, innovative and inspired arts opportunities to enrich the communities we serve.
The Rapid City Arts Council receives support from generous members and donors, the City of Rapid City, John T. Vucurevich Foundation, BH Area Community Foundation, SD Community Foundation, and the South Dakota Arts Council with funds from the State of South Dakota, through the Department of Tourism and the National Endowment for the Arts. Special thanks to Bierschbach Equipment and Supply.
The Dahl Arts Center is a municipal facility managed by the Rapid City Arts Council and owned by the City of Rapid City.
