Ocean Bound!

Fun environmental science for the whole family awaits at this traveling exhibit inside the Kirby Science Discovery Center.

Explore the science of watersheds, aquatic animals and the ocean. You’ll make it “rain” in a 3-D watershed model, pilot a full-size two-station “submersible” and discover fun aquatic species.

It’s here through January.

50 Termespheres for 50 Years

It’s some of the most amazing art you’ll likely ever see.

South Dakota artist Dick Termes is exhibiting 50 of his round Termespheres in a new exhibit in the Everist Gallery.

Termes, whose work has been exhibited internationally, has created more than 400 major spherical surfaces since 1968.

These suspended, rotating globes capture an inside-out view of an entire three-dimensional landscape. Termes, who acknowledges the influence of M.C. Escher and Buckminster Fuller in his work, researches the connections between math, science and art. He developed what he calls six-point perspective in order to capture the up, down and all-around visual world from one revolving point in space.

Don’t miss this memorable exhibit on through Jan. 20, 2019.

South Dakota Gallery

The newest gallery at the Visual Arts Center features all South Dakota artists. The current exhibit, Land of Infinite Variety, is here until Feb. 24, 2019.

Be inspired by work from Russ Duerksen, Jim Green, Mary Groth, Karen Kinder, Areca Roe, Joshua Spies and Tory Stolen as they highlight South Dakota’s beauty, quirks and the spirit that inspires people to call this state home.

BAM! It’s a Picture Book: The Art Behind Graphic Novels

Contemporary graphic novels are enjoying a surge in popularity, and this new colorful art exhibit highlights the art behind them.

Featuring 81 original works by some of the leading artists in the field, this exhibit is located in the Jerstad Gallery until Jan. 6, 2019.

“The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea”

The Pavilion’s newest mission film, “The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea,” explores the beauty and mysteries of the world’s reef ecosystems, which are vanishing at five times the rate of rain forests.

Fly across colorful tropical corals, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, and visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see, and where the tiniest creatures support the greatest predators.
