Maybe you’ve turned the crank on the new Termesphere in downtown Spearfish. Many have asked why we put so much effort into ArtCentral projects, and each time I talk about why art is so important.

ArtCentral: Celebrating our Community with Art

Have you noticed some of the cool things happening in town? ArtCentral has a couple of projects that are underway and it has been great to see the community get engaged, to hear the positive feedback, and to see Spearfish get excited about art in our community.

If you haven’t seen the painted crosswalks yet, ArtCentral recently painted artistic designs on the crosswalks at Grant and Canyon Streets. For three days, community volunteers and members of the ArtCentral committee worked to install semi-permanent art on the pavement. The community support for the project has been outstanding. Watch the Matthews Opera House Facebook page for updates on the next crosswalk painting project.

“It Takes A Village.” ArtCentral thanks businesses for their support.

They say, “It takes a village.” 

The village of the northern Black Hills is kind and generous indeed. Many companies and organizations are living up to that quote and ArtCentral wants to recognize them. This list will be added to as more “villagers” come on board.

Thank you.

ArtCentral is diving right in with exploring the creativity in our community. We are busy installing Linking Fences projects and preparing to paint a few crosswalks in town as well this summer.

We are excited to announce the selection of three artists through our Linking Fences “Call for Community Artists” process. Each artist will install artwork on Spearfish fences. Look forward to seeing more of our local artists work in our community this summer!
