18 May 2004
BISMARCK, ND - UTTC Tribal Tourism Director Karen Paetz says it won't be long before the United Tribes art collection is open for public viewing. The gallery and exhibit space underwent an extensive redesign during spring resulting in a new look for the United Tribes Cultural Interpretive Center, which houses the college's 25-year collection of original pieces of contemporary and traditional American Indian art. Paetz says a formal grand opening will be announced soon. In the meantime, if anyone wants to take a sneak peek, Tribal Tourism students will be in the gallery from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during summer semester.
The gallery has been redesigned to display some of UTTC's hundreds of pieces of two and three-dimensional artwork. On sale in the gallery will be finished tribal art pieces and craft items such as earrings and dream catchers, along with raw materials like beads, shells, furs, hair and sinew. Art prints may be offered later. The Cultural Interpretive Center is located in the Log Cabin building on the north side of campus.
