Succession: Artists and Their Students from the Museum Collections shares pairings of works by teachers and their students.
Succession, culled from the Museum permanent collections, was arranged in honor of Signe Stuart (Professor of Art at South Dakota State University 1971-94), whose retrospective exhibition is on display in the succeeding galleries. This exhibition was planned to celebrate and offer thanks to all educators, who like Stuart, generated ideas and inspiration in their students.
Free admission. Open daily. Weekdays 10 am - 5 pm | Saturday 10 am - 4 pm | Sunday 12 pm - 4 pm (closed Sundays in January through March). Holiday closures: Dec. 23 - Jan. 2 | Jan.15 | Feb. 19.
Signe Stuart: Events in Time and Space is a six-decade retrospective of Signe Stuart's works beginning in the early 1960's. Her approach to art making relies on experimentation with painting materials and forms, often breaking from the standard rectangle and concepts of framing. This exhibition features many of her paper pieces, sewn canvas works, scrolls and an installation.
Stuart was a visual art professor at SDSU for 22 years (1972-1994) and has lived and worked in diverse regions of the United States: East Coast, Pacific Northwest, Northern Plains and Southwest, residing now in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
As cooler weather prevails outside, the South Dakota Art Museum has gathered a selection of works from the collections to keep you warm! We hope the art in Heated warms your body and transports your mind through bright colors, vibrating patterns, balmy landscapes and more.
Friends, throughout the South Dakota winter, we invite you to come in for a little heat. Envelope yourself in the art, enjoy the activities, and find your inner warmth and comfort.
