This large exhibition of work by artists working in or within 50 miles of Sioux City was originally scheduled to open on May 15. After delaying the installation of the exhibition until after the Art Center reopened, staff made the exhibition available virtually on July 11 and for public visitation on July 21. The artworks in Local Perspectives were selected by Al Harris-Fernandez, who recently retired after nearly 18 years as Art Center Director. Approximately 120 artists from the region submitted work for review, from which 42 were selected. The exhibition is on view through October 11.
