Re-Opening Of The Arts Center Re-Energizes Everyone

What better to get people excited about Art than a brand new arts facility!  Technically a remodel, but everything is completely new and fresh. Everyone who visited at the grand opening last weekend was delighted with the upgrades. There were great comments all around and an infectious enthusiasm for the future success of the Jamestown Arts Center.

The opening exhibit, Capture the Coteau features a variety of artists who were on-hand to share their unique visions of the North Dakota landscape.

If you didn’t get a chance to visit the opening festivities, no problem! Come anytime between 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday and Saturday noon – 4:00 pm. Admission is free.  The exhibit includes a scavenger hunt for kids which encourages close examination of the artwork to find hidden details. Kids who complete the hunt will receive a sketchbook. The exhibit will continue through the summer with new artworks being periodically added. And don’t forget, if you have a small “treasure of the coteau” to contribute to the exhibit, please bring it in and we will add it to the community installation. (Want more details on this? See previous blog post).

    Maybe you ought to put together a digital photo tour for the blog that really shows off all the awesome new facilities that the Arts Center has now. Just an idea.

      Coming soon. CSI Replay Channel did a great job with their photo and video documentation which can be found on the Arts Center’s facebook page and the Arts After School kids are making a video commercial featuring all aspects of the renovated facility!

    The Arts Center looks great! Nice work, patience has paid off immensely!

    Logan, you’re a bit blunt, eh? That comment came off as pretty rude.
