City Geode, created and installed in May 2019 by students and Professor Josh Zeis from NDSU is the latest creation. In response to the work, the lead artists said, “What is a city? This City Geode incorporates many of the things that we thought a city needs; buildings, streets, electricity, drainage, and above all else, the human spirit. We each put a piece of ourselves into this sculpture. As a result, it has captured our humanity, with beauty in all of its flaws and imperfections.” Plains Art Museum would like to thank all of the artists involved in the creation of City Geode.
