Art and history combine for unique Pierre event

Preserve South Dakota is excited to announce an art and history event to be held in May and June in the Pierre area. The Art of Place will combine art and history in a unique effort to showcase the many historic resources in the Pierre/Ft. Pierre area through artwork.

Participants will attend a one-day kickoff event on May 18 and enjoy a variety of art- and history-related sessions, such as a cemetery tour, a sketching session at the Verendrye Monument, and a photography walking tour.

From May 18 to June 20, participants will work independently to create works of art that celebrate historic places in the area. Artwork will be shown at an exhibition at Pierre’s Oahe Days festival on June 22 and 23. 

The Central South Dakota Photography Club is hosting the walking tour of downtown Pierre from 11 am to 12 pm on May 18, taking a close look at and photographing the historic buildings and architectural details.
