The National Endowment for the Arts Big Read grant awarded to Spearfish enabled us to do a monthly free community art project. Each project’s theme tied into our community read book, “The Namesake” by Jhumpa Lahiri. We’ve added a few photos just below with some of the completed birds.
Well, Gallery & Events Manager, Ava Sauter, was up last night making Hamsa amulets for today’s Big Read Community Art Project. MORE DETAILS. We’re sure that there will be no evil eye’s in this part of Spearfish!
Join us today in the art gallery from 4pm to 6pm. FREE.

Yesterday evening, Friday, Feb. 7, the Big Read exhibit, “Over Land & Sea: Spearfish Immigration Stories,” was kicked off with an opening reception. Most of those who participated in this exhibit were able to attend, several in their native dress.
