Featured Visual Artist Jordan Thornton
Sioux Falls, SD – The Sioux Falls Arts Council will feature JORDAN THORNTON as March and April’s Featured Visual Artist. Thornton will be on display from March until the end of April.

Jordan received her Bachelor of Fine Arts of Montana State University in 2012. She currently works as an Artist-in-Residence through the South Dakota Arts Council’s Artists in Schools and Communities Program. Jordan also teaches in the Community Learning Center at the Washington Pavilion, and assists in the art galleries at the Washington Pavilion.
Sioux Falls Imagined: A Cultural Plan for a Vibrant and Prosperous City, approved by the City of Sioux Falls in July 2014, named the Sioux Falls Arts Council as the organization given the charge of implementing the plan. From the Artists and Creative Workers task force findings, a strong need identified for the local art community was alternative exhibition space(s). The Featured Artist Exhibit at the Sioux Falls Arts Council office opened in May 2016 as a way to start filling this need.
