Northern Plains Summer Art Institute

2022 Staff and Student Exhibition

June 24, 2022 - September 30, 2022

Starion Bank Gallery

In its third year, Plains Art Museum partners with Circle of Nations School to implement an incredible learning opportunity for Native American youth who are emerging student-artists. The Museum engages some of the highest quality contemporary Native artists who are educators and mentors for these artists as they approach life as an artist after high school. Students from this year’s Northern Plains Summer Art Institute (NPSAI) will have their work exhibited on the third floor of the Center for Creativity at the conclusion of the Institute. All artwork exhibited will have been created during the two-week summer intensive and framed and displayed by students and institute staff.

This program is generously supported by Windrose Fund of the Common Counsel Foundation.
