Exhibition Concept

This exhibition will pair University of South Dakota visual arts and poetry majors in order to create new collaborative work and to both broaden acceptance and appreciation of alternative art disciplines. Up to sixteen pairs will be selected by the former South Dakota Review poetry editor, Jenny Yang Cropp, and Director of University Art Galleries, Alison Erazmus. There will be no set theme to this exhibition, however, all work created as a result of these collaborations must be new and original. Selected pairs are free to choose how they approach the collaborative process.
