Evans Flammond Sr. has created a beautiful mural in our Sioux Indian Museum. The mural is named “Unity” and represents all people coming together as one.
This mural is made possible by a grant from the South Dakota Arts Council and their Residencies for Recovery program.
Evans Flammond Sr. also has a new exhibit at the museum, titled, “I’m Still Here: Changed, Growing, Healing.” This exhibit contains various mediums featuring ledger art, paintings, a painted buffalo hide, and a painted buffalo skull. Over the past year, Evans lost family and friends, but he chooses to continue on his path. In describing his work, he says it’s a message to other artists in every stage of their career not to hold themselves back. “The sky is the limit with whatever you want to do and create with your own two hands to share with the world.”
Starting May 19, the museum will be open five days a week. Wednesday through Saturday, the museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Sundays, the museum is open from 1 to 5 p.m. STEAM activities will be available every day, including Toddler Time, Discovery Expedition, and Journey Into Space.
