ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University will dedicate
its new International Sculpture Garden at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23.
The sculpture garden is located in NSU’s Baumgart Plaza, west of the Johnson Fine Arts Center. The space will display five sculptures – titled “Four Elements,” “Meditation,” “Reminiscence,” “Rendezvous” and “Triumph” – by acclaimed Vietnamese artist Tuan Nguyen. The pieces, valued at $1.2 million, are made possible thanks to the generosity of the Picture Art Foundation.
NSU alum Benjamin Victor, who was instrumental in bringing the Tuan sculptures to campus, will host a reception in his studio in the lower level of Lincoln Hall after the dedication.
Parking is available at the Barnett Center, and a shuttle will bring people to the reception after the dedication.
