LAUNCH OF CITY HALL ART EXHIBITS INITIATIVE

LAUNCH OF CITY HALL ART EXHIBITS INITIATIVE

The City of Sioux Falls is committed to promoting the arts by exhibiting the works of talented artists who contribute greatly to the health and vitality of our community, through the Rotational Art Display at City Hall. Featuring public art in City Hall gives local artists an opportunity to display their talents to the community and visitors, and gives visitors an opportunity to learn more about the unique cultural identity of Sioux Falls via the medium of visual art.

The City of Sioux Falls, with support from the Sioux Falls Arts Council and the City’s Visual Arts Commission, invites artists to submit proposals for the Rotational Art Display at City Hall. Proposals will be reviewed and selected once per year, and displays will be updated twice per year based on those selections. The City, with support from the Sioux Falls Arts Council, has budgeted a stipend for selected artists, demonstrating their commitment to the value of artwork and artists in our community.

  • To showcase the unique talents of artists in our community
