Continuum: Honoring Oscar Howe's Legacy

Open -

Continuum: Honoring Oscar Howe’s Legacy seeks to stimulate contemplation of Oscar Howe’s immeasurable impact as artist, mentor, educator, and advocate by sharing pairings of works by Howe’s students and their selected protégés, as well as art pieces by American Indian artists who have gleaned inspiration from Howe’s art and ideas. Like ripples in a pond, Howe’s impact continues to grow and spread. Continuum does not comprehensively describe that incredible reach but instead attempts to provide a brief glimpse of these ripples. The South Dakota Art Museum acknowledges there could be many more artists represented in Continuum, as Howe's legacy lives and thrives within artists and creatives in South Dakota and beyond.  The Museum looks forward to growing in our knowledge of these connections through conversations stimulated by these exhibits.  We also wish to express our gratitude to the advisors who shared their wisdom and inspired Continuum, to the participating artists who shared their histories and talents, who selected the art pieces, who connected the Museum with more artists, and who wrote much of the exhibit text.  We are honored to share this experience with you.
