Dakota Masterworks Art Show features creativity of older adults in South Dakota


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - From photography to painting and even wood carvings, you’ll find a little bit of everything at this year’s Dakota Masterworks Art Show.

We have people that are entered from Sioux Falls all the way to Rapid City,” Dakota Masterworks Art Show Coordinator LuAnn Severson said. “Some of them are overcoming health obstacles; we have people that have Parkinson’s Disease, MS. Some are overcoming cancer, and once you put a paint brush in their hand or camera in their hand, the art piece just comes alive.”

“My thought this year was we need to keep participating and providing this avenue to older adults to exercise what’s on their hearts,” Prairie Creek Lodge resident Judy Ryan said.

The South Dakota Health Care Association helps to put on the art show. While the event did wrap up Friday afternoon, it will be traveling to different long-term care facilities and then ends in Pierre during the legislative session in January.
