Our newest acquisition joins familiar favorites in this exhibition of artwork by Northern Plains Tribal artists from the Permanent Collection of the Visual Arts Center. See works by some of South Dakota’s preeminent artists, including Oscar Howe and Arthur Amiotte, alongside our newest addition to the Collection, Tatanka Sakowin by Wade Patton, awarded second place in Pencil, Charcoal, Ink, Crayon, Pastel, Chalk and Scratch Board at the juried art show of the 2018 Northern Plains Indian Art Market.

Wade Patton, an Oglala Lakota tribal member, was born and raised on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He received his BFA from Black Hills State University and later pursued artistic opportunities on the East Coast. In 2015, he returned to the Black Hills, where he is an active member of the thriving Native arts scene in Rapid City. Patton’s work is included in public and private collections throughout the United States.
