Sioux City, IA
March 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Sioux City Art Center's fantastic facility. The exhibition galleries have been used to present the widest possible range of art to our community. But the building also allowed the Art Center to renew its commitment and bring increased attention to the artistic accomplishments of local artists. to recognize the anniversary of the bold, innovative thinking that led to this building, the Art Center is bringing a mix of many of our favorite creators and innovators for a three-month exhibition of Sioux City's visual artists.
In addition to sharing some of their most creative artworks with the Art Center's visitors, the artists are asked to think about the role that the drive to create plays in their lives. The creation of art is as difficult as it can be fulfilling, an activity usually performed in isolation that is then, if all goes well, presented for public scrutiny. With all the challenges that go into the making of art, why do our local artists devote themselves to it? Come find out for yourself how they address this question and how much fantastic art is produced in Sioux City.
