No artistic talent is necessary, we just want you to have a great evening” All proceeds will go directly back to Heartland Humane Society.

The exhibit reception will be 4-6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2. It features: •Forty-seven Oscar Howe paintings, 30 of them owned by USD and 17 on loan from the Howe family. The paintings on display all were created during his time teaching at USD. One piece featured in the exhibition, “Calling on Wakan Tanka,” the first painting USD purchased from Howe, has now recently returned from touring with the exhibition “The Plains Indians: Artist of Earth and Sky,” which went to Paris, New York and Kansas City, Missouri. •Two Howe sculptures, a wood carving and another from South Dakota alabaster. Howe is mostly known for his paintings, and many people don’t know about his sculptural work. •Several pieces of correspondence on loan from the Library Archives and Special Collections that show Howe’s role in changing Native American art standards. Howe entered a piece in the 1958 National Indian Painting Competition at the Philbrook Museum of Art, but it was rejected as not being a “traditional Indian painting.” That letter is part of the USD exhibit as is Howe’s letter of protest, a letter from the exhibit’s juror in response and a letter from the Philbrook’s director. Howe’s protest letter is well known, but the other letters are not often cited and paint a larger picture to the story and change the context of Howe’s letter, which ultimately led the museum to change the rules. “Even though the University Art Galleries at USD has two exhibitions of Howe’s work every year in the Oscar Howe Gallery in Old Main, this exhibition is truly one-of-a-kind. Moving the centennial show into our main gallery, the John Day Gallery, has allowed us to show more of his works at once, which showcases how active he was as an artist,” said Michelle St. Vrain, interim director of University Art Galleries. Irwin, SESDAC, Inc. Employee Of The Month Professional Fellows Program From October 10 to November 7, 2015, the City of Vermillion will host two professionals from Indonesia and Thailand for short-term assignments in their offices, as they participate in the U.S. Department of State-sponsored Professional Fellows Program. The exchange has been arranged by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the organization that develops and advances professional local government management worldwide. The Professional Fellows Program brings emerging leaders in the fields of environmental sustainability; legislative process and governance; civic engagement; NGO management; economic empowerment and entrepreneurship; and journalism from around the world to the United States for intensive fellowships designed to broaden their professional expertise. Participants spend approximately one month in the United States, during which they receive hands-on exposure to national legislative offices, state legislatures, local government offices, businesses, and non-profit organizations through carefully designed full-time fellowships. Fellowships provide participants the opportunity to examine the relationship between civil society and government in the United States and how respective agencies and organizations work to strengthen citizen participation, transparency, and accountability. The program also establishes structured interaction among American and foreign participants designed to develop enduring professional ties and lasting partnerships.
