SDAM Guild

The South Dakota Art Museum Guild provides invaluable volunteer support to the museum and hosts regular programs and excursions, open to the public. Please join us for these informative and fun events!

This year's programs will take place virtually via ZOOM, 9:30-11 a.m. Without the limitations of meeting physically in the museum, we're able to hear from artists across the state and even across the country, touring their studios and seeing their work in process. It will be like going on a field trip every month! We're also excited that people can join us from anywhere. Join us and invite a friend!

Links to register for each ZOOM session will be posted below as well in the Events section of the museum's website ( and on the Guild's Facebook and the Museum's Facebook Events pages. Email reminders will also be sent to everyone on our Guild email list, so make sure we have your email by contacting this year's co-president, Lynnette Taylor at

Guild membership is encouraged but not required to attend. Dues of $20 per year support Guild programs and contribute to the museum's Art Acquisitions Fund.
