Kenneth BoultonAs we enter the 2020-21 academic year, I want to thank you so much for your support of our outstanding program. As Northern confronts this time of unparalleled challenge, it is important to remember that the arts continue to provide comfort, resilience, and the means for self-expression and connection.

This past spring, our faculty and students embraced these ideals in discovering new opportunities for remote teaching and learning, sustaining our fine arts community from a distance, and maintaining a positive and constructive outlook for our future. We look forward to welcoming our students and faculty back to campus this year, and are anticipating another fantastic season for the arts. Highlights include NSU Theatre’s production of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream;” a stunning exhibit by Yankton Sioux Oyate artist Jerry Fogg; and NSU Opera’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance” - a collaborative venture with the Aberdeen University-Civic Symphony and NSU Theatre.

I am proud of Northern’s commitment to providing a superior education in the visual and performing arts, where students develop their talents, refine their passions, and ultimately become leaders in their chosen fields. We also succeed in creating an academic environment that encourages students to explore a multitude of artistic opportunities, wherever their talents lead them. Truly, our students do it all!

With this brochure, I hope you enjoy the chance to look back on the past year, preview the exciting 2020-21 season, and consider contributing to the School of Fine Arts’ growing base of support. As always, I look forward to sharing and celebrating our bright future with you.

 

Warm regards,

Dr. Kenneth O. Boulton
