Did you know that South Dakota is home to six scenic national parks? In honor of the National Park Service centennial (1916-2016), the Center for Western Studies is proud to present an exhibition of photography exploring the wonder and beauty of the South Dakota landscape through July 15. A reception will be held 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

While the exhibition is designed to pay homage to the state’s many national parks, we are excited to showcase a vast array of locations throughout the state.

Each image entices viewers moved by the beauty the photographer has captured to visit the site and experience it themselves. Winter, spring, summer or fall, South Dakota is beautiful in any season, and the hidden treasures on display in this exhibition will encourage everyone to explore our remarkable state.
