Local Perspectives

July 11, 2020

October 11, 2020

This large exhibition of work by artists working in or within 50 miles of Sioux City was originally scheduled to open on May 15. After delaying the installation of the exhibition until after the Art Center reopened, staff made the exhibition available virtually on July 11 and for public visitation on July 21. As is the case with attendance to the Art Center in general, visitors to the exhibition are strongly encouraged to wear masks and will be required to maintain social distancing. Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the building. Staff is conducting frequent disinfecting of all touch points in the building. Over the next couple of months, The Art Center’s Facebook page will feature weekly selections from the exhibition in greater detail, allowing those who prefer to remain at home the best possible opportunity to experience the exhibition.

The artworks in Local Perspectives were selected by Al Harris-Fernandez, who recently retired after nearly 18 years as Art Center Director. Approximately 120 artists from the region submitted work for review, from which 42 were selected. In the near future, awards will be announced for the top three artworks as determined by Mr. Harris-Fernandez, and a brochure will be made available to the public.
