Art as a cultural center: Guild Hall's lasting legacy
This interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.
Established in 1931 on Long Island, Guild Hall was more than an art collection. It was the cultural center of the community.
For the past several weeks, the Visual Arts Center at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls has hosted the exhibition Guild Hall: An Adventure in the Arts. Visitors can see work from some of the 20th Century's great artists: Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Chuck Close, and more.
Perhaps the enduring question is what imprint will Guild Hall leave on the cultural community of South Dakota? Curator Cody Henrichs stops by the SDPB studio to talk about what it means to bring this exhibit to the state.
