The South Dakota Art Museum Newsletter

The Museum Monthly | April '20

Greetings from the South Dakota Art Museum From Home!

We may be closed but we're working from our homes to bring the museum to your home. We've been part of a global Museum From Home community (#museumfromhome) sharing images and information about works in our current exhibitions and collections with art lovers around the world. Closer to home, we've joined with the Brookings Arts Council to encourage everyone to create their own art with daily prompts shared through Facebook and Instagram as the South Dakota Art Challenge (#sdartchallenge). 

It's no substitute for seeing the real thing but for the time-being, we hope it brings joy and inspiration and whets your appetite for visiting us when we're able to reopen. Click the images below to see some of the new content we've added to our website and follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see even more.

Contact Pam Adler ( with your phone # and she'll be happy to help you find exactly what you need. She can ship it or arrange for safe pick-up while we're closed. Our online store ( is never closed and Pam will be shipping out orders during the limited time shel'll be in the store while we're closed.


We love seeing you...but since we can't get together in person, we're planning the next best thing: online gatherings using Zoom to bring people together for artist and curator talks and Guild chats. Let us know what topics you'd be interested in learning about and we'll schedule some virtual get togethers. Even if you aren't a Zoom pro yet (aren't we all becoming one? and don't we all wish we'd bought Zoom stock three months ago?), we'll record the sessions so you can watch them as videos whenever you want.
