2021 South Dakota Art Museum Members 


 

South Dakota Art Museum Members Make it Happen - Thank you!

Your valued support of the South Dakota Art Museum connects people to art and to each other. Members make it happen! Your generosity and passion make possible the collecting, preservation, exhibition, and interpretation of visual art. You provide access and education, and foster appreciation of the visual arts across the state and beyond. Since South Dakota State University funding applies to Museum salaries and overhead, membership and donations support Museum exhibitions and programs. Every dollar that you give contributes directly to enriching our community and individual lives through art. Thank you sincerely for your support and commitment! 

Donations of artwork and funding for artwork purchases

100% of the artwork in our collection of nearly 7,000 art objects was donated directly by the artist or collectors or purchased with donated funds. You can designate your gift for artwork acquisition or preservation. Please contact Carolyne Hart at 605-688-4313 if you would like to learn more about this or other designated giving options.
