Artists with a uniquely South Dakotan perspective exhibit their work on The Garage's walls, inspiring conversations and questions.
We are currently featuring pieces created by local artist, Lucy Ganje.
Raised by journalist/printer parents in Eagle Butte, S.D. on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, Ganje grew up in a household where citizenship, the public’s right to know and community activism were stressed. As a graphic designer and letterpress artist her work often reflects these principles, including the use of art and design as a social and political tool. Visual storytelling and documentation can be seen in Ganje’s work, whether she’s creating oral histories using typographic design and the 500-year-old process of letterpress printing, or digital narratives addressing cross-cultural history. Often taking a journalistic approach, her art investigates identity construction, the taking of American Indian lands, sovereignty and intercultural dialogue and exchange.
Stop by The Garage today and see Lucy's unique pieces on display!
