FarmHer: South Dakota, an exhibit celebrating South Dakota women farmers of the past and present, opened on April 20. It is a traveling exhibit produced by the South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum and FarmHer, Inc. For three years, Gwen McCausland, director of the South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum, worked curating this exhibit. The museum received grants from the SDSU Women and Giving Fund and from the South Dakota Humanities Council. Gwen, Kelley LeBeaux, and Vicki Hebb interviewed women across the state. The team selected ten women to be photographed by Ali Leuty of FarmHer, Inc. The women selected represent the diversity of commodities, ethnicity, size of operation and ages of women farmers/ranchers in South Dakota.
An opening reception is scheduled for June 15 at 2 PM. Marji Guyler-Alaniz, owner of FarmHer, Inc., will be speaking at 2:30. The reception is free and open to the public. The exhibit closes at the SD Agricultural Heritage Museum on February 8, 2020. It will be available for rent in March 2020.
