Giving Hearts Day

February 12, 2015

The HEart of a healthy community

On Giving Hearts Day, your donation of $10 or more to Plains Art Museum is magnified by match funding from an anonymous donor providing $4,000 if we raise at least that amount or more!  To keep our exhibitions, events, and classes available, affordable—and often free—for the community, we invite you to give back on Giving Hearts Day on Thursday, February 12. We are excited to be part of this amazing statewide event, organized by Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation.

To make a secure online contribution on February 12, go to impactgiveback.org.
Give from the heart, and help us continue to give the gift of art!

Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Ceremony and Art Exhibition

February 17, 2015
6:30 pmto8:00 pm

This ceremony recognizes all North Dakota winners of the 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards and celebrates the works by visual art winners on display at the Museum’s Center for Creativity art gallery. For the first year in the long history of the national contest, North Dakota teens are competing in a statewide event instead of a regional competition. The change is due to a partnership between Plains Art Museum and the Red River Valley Writing Project to work together as the state affiliate for the contest and coordinate the judging.
