Attention northeast WY artists and arts groups: NEA Chair will be in the neighborhood Nov. 16-17

According to today’s Rapid City Journal, the chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts will be in Pine Ridge and Rapid City this week as part of a three-state trip focused on local community art.

Rocco Landesman will visit the Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School in Pine Ridge on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 16. He will join a panel discussion on arts in the Black Hills at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Dahl Arts Center, 713 Seventh Street, in Rapid City that is open to the public. Panel discussion will be on "Creative Placemaking in the Black Hills Region."

Last time we looked at a map, some of that Black Hills region was in Wyoming. It still is! Some of our Black Hills artists and arts group reps might want to traipse over to Rapid on Thursday to what’s cooking, creative placemaking-wise.
