Writers can draw inspiration from the lives and talents of others, so visiting the North Dakota Museum of Art is always an enlightening experience for the members of the Awesome Authors class. This year, Sue Fink led us through two fascinating photography exhibits: Rebecca Norris Webb's My Dakota, and Violet Isle by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb. These exhibits, shot in South Dakota and Cuba respectively, generated many wonderful questions and comments from the kids. We also saw Robert Archambeau's pottery exhibit, entitled Over Time, and some of the pieces in the sculpture garden outside.
Sue told us about the life and collection of artist Barton Benes, including his Museum Donor Wall. We are truly fortunate to have this extraordinary museum in our community! You will find a link to the NDMOA's website under Related Links on the left side of this page.
