Eide/Dalrymple Gallery


As Augustana University's primary art display space, the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery hosts an average of nine exhibits per year, including Augustana’s senior art show. The gallery also exhibits the work of professional artists, who discuss their careers and art with students in master classes and the general public during opening receptions.

The gallery also houses one of the most important collections of European and American original prints in the Midwest. These works are on occasional view during our permanent collection exhibitions and available for viewing by appointment. The Carl Grupp Permanent Art Collection includes works of Picasso, Chagall, Warhol, Winslow Homer, Whistler, Matisse and Rouault, amongst many others. The collection is named for Professor Emeritus of Art Carl Grupp (1939-2019), who was a nationally acclaimed printmaker. He founded the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery and was instrumental in developing and expanding Augustana’s prestigious print collection.

The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery is named after pioneering Augustana art professors Palmer Eide and Ogden Dalrymple. Many of their collaborative works are spread throughout the campus, such as “The Muse” outside the Center for Visual Arts, "Hindsight, Insight and Foresight" (The Owls) by Morrison Commons and “The Bears” by the Fryxell Humanities Center, "The Sower" inside the Chapel and "Creatures of Creation" on the east side of Mikkelsen Library.

As a part of Augustana University, the mission of the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery is to contribute to the educational and cultural vitality of the university, surrounding community and state of South Dakota. The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery inspires the artists of today and tomorrow, and serves as a resource for teaching and promoting life-long learning through its permanent collection and temporary exhibition program with accompanying artist visits, gallery talks and educational materials.
