Events in Yankton

Exhibit: Youth Art

Each year, Yankton Area Arts celebrates Youth Art Month (March) by displaying local student artwork. This year we will expand our exhibit to honor student artwork from Sacred Heart Middle School (Angela Kronaizl, instructor), students from Ability Building Services (Jessi Koch, instructor), and artwork created by artists with disabilities.

The exhibit will be on display February 22-April 1, 2021 with a special reception honoring the artists on Friday, March 5 from 5:00-6:30pm. The G.A.R. Hall Art Gallery is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-5pm and Tuesday and Thursday by appointment.

There is a ramp located on the south side of the building. Masks are required.

All exhibits are open and free to the public.
