A few months ago, I submitted an article about the Take the Day event at the Washington Pavilion. I am glad to say that it made it into the Fall edition of the Dakota State magazine publication. The article features myself, Cassie, Alan Montgomery, Angela Behrends, and also mentions Giles Timms, who also has a featured article in the magazine.
Here is the full text from the article: Dakota State University was very well-represented when five instructors put their artistic skills on display at the annual “Take the Day” exhibition and fund-raiser hosted at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls on October 3rd. Art Professors Angela Behrends, Cassie Edwards, and Alan Montgomery created works, along with Animation professor Giles Timms, and Audio Production professor, Nathan Edwards.
On the day of the event, a total of 44 regional artists gathered to work toward one goal: Create a new individual work of art in just one day. While the artists were hard at work, the public was invited to watch the creation of each piece and ask questions about the process behind how they are produced. With an estimated 2,000 guests visiting on the day of the opening, the event was a tremendous success.
All of the completed works are currently on display at the Visual Arts Center in the Washington Pavilion through December 11, 2011. Information about all of the artists can be viewed at www.taketheday.org.
Also, DSU students recently performed at our second annual “Tips for Talent” event on campus. Read more about it on the DSU Audio Blog.
