Our art program emphasizes working in the studio in a variety of disciplines, but also provides hands-on learning opportunities to organize and curate exhibits, implement effective graphic design, and work within the Sioux Falls arts community.
At the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery in the Center for Visual Arts, art majors assist with all aspects of organizing and curating exhibitions. Students help design the gallery text and promotional materials, as well as exhibit layouts and installations.
You can also work as a gallery monitor or intern, assisting with cataloguing, framing, and researching over 3,000 objects in the Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection on campus. This collection includes past masters like Pablo Picasso, Käthe Kollwitz, and Henri Matissse, along with regional and national contemporary artists Robert Aldern, James Cambronne, and Carl Grupp. In addition, part of the gallery is reserved for student exhibitions.
In the community, graphic design students actively help nonprofit organizations and Augustana student organizations produce outstanding communications and marketing materials.
