Local artists at heart of exhibit marking Art Center anniversary
March 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Sioux City Art Center’s new facility, and the center wants to celebrate in style with works by local artists.
While the Art Center has featured some of the biggest names in art, including Jackson Pollack and Grant Wood, it also has 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 will feature a mix of many of its favorite creators and innovators for a three-month exhibition of Sioux City’s visual artists titled Creativity: Sioux City Style.
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 created in Sioux City.
Reception is Saturday, March 25, from 5-7 p.m., with a gallery talk at 6 p.m., with art on display through June 25.
