Pollinator Garden Planting Day

May 23, 2019, 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Celebrate summer at Plains Art Museum! Plant annuals, vegetables, and herbs in our Pollinator Garden, a habitat for pollinators that defies the concrete, urban environment surrounding the Museum. Feel free to bring your own gloves and hand tools; plants and refreshments will be provided. Plants donated by Baker Garden & Gift.

Buzz Lab 6.0
Plains Art Museum is excited to announce the 6th annual Buzz Lab teen internship program. Interns will work together over eight days this summer to learn field research, plant and insect identification methods, maintain the Pollinator Garden at Plains Art Museum, and share their knowledge and art with our community.

This program is made possible with support from ArtPlace America, the Bush Foundation, NDSU Junior Master Gardener, and the Phyllis Thysell Fund for Education. ArtPlace America is a collaboration of leading national and regional foundations, banks, and federal agencies accelerating creative placemaking across the U.S.

Women Artists in the Plains Art Museum Collection

Despite decades of critique, direct activism, and multiple waves of feminist art movements, artworks in the collections of art museums around the world – including Plains Art Museum – are proportionately dominated by men. This year’s permanent collection reinstallation will explore the Museum’s acquisitions of artwork by women since our inception as the Red River Art Center in 1965.
