UTTC art event has new features
13 April 206

BISMARCK (UTN) - A life-sized buffalo sculpture and computer designed graphics and animation are new forms of creative expression that will be on display during the annual United Tribes Art Exhibit and Sale.

      Students in the college's Art-Art Marketing Program will meet the public April 27-29 in downtown Bismarck and display and sell the results of their creative work over the past year.

Durable epoxy filler is applied to a buffalo sculpture by United Tribes Art-Art Marketing Program Director Wayne Pruse and student Brianne McHugh (Three Affiliated). The life-sized critter will be on display during an art exhibit and sale April 27-29 in downtown Bismarck. Dustin Black of Spirit Lake (not pictured) also worked on the sculpture.

      The event begins Thursday, April 27 with the eighth annual Sidewalk Art Show. Using nothing more than chalk and an idea, students create original designs and drawings on the sidewalk located on the northwest corner of 4th Street and Broadway Avenue. The show runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. School groups and the public are invited to participate.

      The eighth annual United Tribes Art Exhibit and Sale is scheduled for Friday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Contemporary art and traditional American Indian work will be on display in two dimensional and sculpted forms.

      The life-sized buffalo sculpture is a class project that is still under construction. When completed, it will be accompanied by two human figures - American Indian hunters. The display is up for sale to the highest bidder.

      The results of student work during classes in computer graphics and video animation add a high tech dimension to the art exhibit and showcase student skills.

      Also on display will be a scale model of the next public sculpture by United Tribes Art-Art Marketing students that will be installed this summer in a Bismarck city park.

      All of the art exhibit events take place at the corner of 4th Street and Broadway Avenue in downtown Bismarck. In case of rain, the show will be held indoors in the Impact art store.
