Exhibit: Because

Susan Heggestad is a Vermillion, South Dakota-based artist working in prints, paper and mixed-media sculpture. They have spent their career balancing studio work with being a teaching artist and advocate, working in such diverse environments as K-12 schools, care centers, healthcare, and other public venues.

As an artist, I am drawn to printmaking and papermaking, traditionally feminine handicrafts, and installation. The connection, for me, is a keen interest in our gendered experience of the world. Hands and the human form make up the imagery that appears again and again; our bodies are the vehicles through which we understand the world around us. Everything we know is mediated through the body.

Xanadu in Concert

Xanadu Bio

In March 2020, dozens of Yankton High School students were rehearsing for the upcoming spring musical, Xanadu, when schools closed in response to the COVID pandemic. One year later, Yankton Area Arts, in partnership with the Lewis and Clark Theater Company, is giving the cast the curtain call they have been waiting for! The cast will reunite to perform selections from the musical, a spoof of the 1980s movie starring Olivia Newton John and featuring Gene Kelly. This performance will highlight students from the YHS Class of 2020 and will feature 2001 YHS Grad Tim Hausmann in the Gene Kelly role. Xanadu is directed by Amy Miner, with choreography by Kathryn Reimler, and music direction by Julie Amsberry.

Xanadu is being performed as part of the Yankton Area Arts Annual Summer Concert Series held each Tuesday night at 8:00 throughout the summer. This concert will be held at the Dakota Theater, located at 328 Walnut and is free due to the support of the City of Yankton, Yankton Parks and Recreation, and the Lewis and Clark Theater Company.

Yankton Area Arts is a non-profit organization located at 508 Douglas in Yankton, SD.

Each of these groupings contains a minimum of 300 brushes. The significance of the multiple has been emphasized and is a large part of the statement that they are intended to make, with over 7,000 brushes completed. Learn more here!
