Carver Gallery Exhibits

The City of Sioux Falls is committed to promoting the arts by exhibiting the works of
talented artists who contribute greatly to the health and vitality of our community,
through the new Carver Gallery at City Hall. Featuring public art in City Hall gives
local artists an opportunity to display their talents to the community and visitors, and
gives visitors an opportunity to learn more about the unique cultural identity of Sioux
Falls via the medium of visual art.

The City of Sioux Falls, with support from the Sioux Falls Arts Council and the City’s
Visual Arts Commission, invites artists to submit proposals for the Carver Gallery
at City Hall. Proposals will be reviewed, selected  and displays will be
updated twice per year. The City, with support from the Sioux
Falls Arts Council, has budgeted a stipend for selected artists, demonstrating their
commitment to the value of artwork and artists in our community.
