Join us at noon on January 12 as BHSU Professor Desy Schoenewies and other art faculty at BHSU discuss their recent works, exhibitions, and the BHSU art program. This presentation will feature all art faculty across photo, studio, and graphic design in 3-5 minute segments and the work of the Black Hills State University Art Club. Desy will also talk about upcoming opportunities for community members to be a part of another city mural that will be going up over the current mural next to old city hall. This event takes place in the Matthews Opera House theater and is free to the public. Coffee provided by Common Grounds will be available.

About the Bellman Brown Bag Series

The Bellman Brown Bag series is a humanities program designed to explore ideas, history, literature, art and culture. The Brown Bag program was developed by Dr. Stewart Bellman in the 1990’s. Recognizing the Matthews Opera House as an ideal venue for the exploration of humanities topics, he engaged a line-up of speakers to present programs on a range of humanities topics each month.

Dr. Bellman was a professor of English at Black Hills State University, Spearfish, SD. His teaching career spanned thirty years. Bellman retired from BHSU and passed away in November 2002.

Programs are presented on the second Wednesday of each month, noon to 1pm. Designed to begin and end within the lunch hour, patrons are invited to bring their lunch, if desired, or simply enjoy an hour of learning and entertainment.  This is an opportunity to gain insight into themes that touch our daily lives.

Coffee for the Bellman Brown Bag Series is generously provided by Common Grounds in Spearfish, SD.
