Located on the west side of campus, the South Dakota Art Museum is home to several collections of people with an SDSU connection or to the state. Paintings by Ada Caldwell, Harvey Dunn, Oscar Howe and more are on display at the museum.
Museum curators change the exhibits every few months to provide a fresh display. The building also has a lecture hall, along with a gift shop. While admission to the museum is free, donations are appreciated.
The South Dakota Art Museum built in 1970 is the only art museum in the state that is accredited by the American Association of Museums. A $1.8 million expansion and renovation was completed in 2002, adding 8,555 square-feet of display space, better access and storage, and has enhanced the Museum’s outreach program.
