A Rapid City artist has completed a 2-story mural near Main Street Square that reflects the images created in the ongoing ”Passage of Wind and Water” sculpture project. What was initially planned as a 5-week work schedule turned into almost 3 months of frequently intense labor for the muralist.

”Passage of Wind and Water” spokesperson Anna Huntington says the idea of having someone paint a mural on a 2-story wall facing Main Street Square seemed like a no-brainer.

Artist and musician Paul Peterson's exhibit "In Denial of Context: Landscapes and Other Ephemera" is at the Dahl Arts Center through April 23rd. The exhibit showcases Peterson's paintings while exploring themes dealing with transitions that have taken place in rural life (particularly in South Dakota) over the past century. Most of these images are landscapes, some more abstracted than others, all painted with a passionate brushstroke. In 2012, Paul received an Artist Fellowhsip Grant from the South Dakota Arts Council.
