1970: 50 Works for 50 Years

Thomas Hart Benton

"In the Ozarks"

The South Dakota Memorial Art Center was dedicated on Sunday, May 31, 1970. Over the course of the year, works were acquired through generous gifts including this lithograph by Thomas Hart Benton [1889-1975], a gift of the South Dakota General Federation of Women’s Clubs. The GFWC had been a central force in the fundraising and organization of the Museum.

Benton’s "In the Ozarks" is after a 1934 painting, "Homestead," in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City, and was distributed by Associated American Artists in New York City beginning in 1938.
