University Art Galleries and Libraries to honor artists of three unique exhibits with reception, program

VERMILLION, S.D. -- A reception for poets and artists currently displaying their work at the University Libraries on the University of South Dakota campus is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 18 on the second floor of the I.D. Weeks library building.

  • “Corroborations 2013” poets will read their poetry and discuss with artists the process of creating work for the exhibition, which paired USD visual arts and poetry majors to create new collaborative work.
  • “Images from Abroad” showcases photography taken by students from USD and Cosumnes River College, who participated in a faculty-led study tour last summer of Ireland, Wales, London and Paris.
  • “Making Art Work” exhibits the work of a community visual art-making event, where student and community artists were given seven hours to make an artwork, from start to finish.

All exhibits are currently on display until May 3. The reception and exhibits are free and open to the public.
