Oscar Howe Institute Reception and Honoring Ceremony is Friday
The institute provides artistic workshops for students interested in contemporary American Indian fine arts with a focus on native culture, history and traditions. All courses are taught by professional artists and all students attend free of charge, including meals, housing, instruction and art supplies.
This year’s students came from 11 tribes in Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, North Dakota and South Dakota.
The OHSAI honors longtime USD professor and American Indian Northern Plains artist Oscar Howe, who established a summer art institute in the 1960s. The current institute began in 1991 and continues to support the goals Howe set forth through transference of cultural knowledge from one generation to the next.
The reception and honoring ceremony will be held at noon Friday, June 17, at the John A. Day Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts on the USD campus.
