The exhibition will close on April 18 rather than the 20th as originally communicated. The museum will be closed April 19-21 as the result of a recently announced holiday for State employees granted by Governor Kristi Noem.
The South Dakota Governor’s Biennial is designed “to recognize and encourage South Dakota artists, to promote the artistic identity of South Dakota, to celebrate the cultural and artistic heritage and future of South Dakota, and to encourage a larger sense of community and connection across separate artistic communities within the state.” The 8th Biennial begins at the South Dakota Art Museum (January 25, 2019 - April 20, 2019) before traveling to the Dahl Arts Center, Rapid City (May 3, 2019 - August 17, 2019); the John A. Day Gallery, Vermilion (Aug 30, 2019 - Oct 11, 2019); and the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science, Sioux Falls (Oct 26, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020).

This exhibit is made possible in part by the generous support of the South Dakota Arts Council with the sponsorship of the South Dakota Governor's Office. We thank all of the artists who submitted their work, and Governor Daugaard, whose endorsement enables this exhibition to continue to document and exhibit the art made here and now in South Dakota.
