South Dakota Web Roundup

Nov 4, 2011

Tonight is the grand opening of "Artifact" at the IPSO Gallery in Sioux Falls. This art show paired ten sponsors with ten artists, who were each given a word and an artifact and asked to create a piece. Proceeds are split between each artist and the Sioux Falls SculptureWalk.

The Roberts County town of Summit is holding its 73rd annual lutefisk supper on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 5-8 p.m. at the Summit Community Hall. Good news for northern lutefisk lovers — it’s an all-you-can-eat feed.

November is Native American Heritage Month, so what better way to celebrate than with a little Lakota? At KILI Radio in Porcupine, they greet every day with a hearty “Hehanni Was’te!” Those of us not within the broadcast area of “The Voice of the Lakota Nation” can listen to their Lakota language program archives online.

Do you have a photogenic hunting dog? South Dakota Tourism is holding a “Take Me Hunting Photo Contest” until December 12. Upload a picture of your eager dog to their Facebook page and you could win one of eight weekly prizes.  

In our May/June 2011 issue, we wrote about Vermillion baker Larry Smith’s plans to ride his recumbent bicycle from Aberdeen to Vermillion to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease. His trip was filmed and will be made into a feature-length documentary if enough money can be raised within the next 27 days. Donations can be made at the filmmakers’ fundraising page.

I got to see a preview of the Artifact show this week and it is really neat! I love the idea of partnering sponsors with artists. It give the sponsors the ability to be a part of the final project. Good stuff.
