Location
Dakota Discovery Museum

The Dakota Discovery Museum is hosting the exhibit From the Hills of Boyd County: A Portrait of a Place, featuring photoconstructions by Nebraska artist Pat James. The exhibit opens Saturday, July 13 and runs through September 21.

Creative people see things differently and need only to look at the unremarkable to see the remarkable. Pat James is such a person. She draws inspiration from many things; her father’s antique rake spokes, Chinese scrolls or ice on barbed wire to create her photocontructions.

From the Hills of Boyd County will be showing in the Gates Changing Gallery through Saturday, September 21.  A free public reception will be held on Saturday, August 10 from 2 pm to 4 pm.  Artworks will be available for sale.  For more information call 605-996-2122 or visit www.dakotadiscovery.com.
