Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Behrends’ artwork added to state’s permanent collection

May 19, 2022

"Buffaloed" artwork

Angela Behrends’ artwork “Buffaloed” has been accepted for the South Dakota Art for State Buildings program through the South Dakota Arts Council.

“This means it will become part of the state’s collection and be on permanent display in one of South Dakota’s state buildings,” Behrends said.

 “Buffaloed,” a buffalo head made of steel wire with bison horn caps, was initially a part of the South Dakota Governor’s 8th Biennial Art Exhibition. Behrends was an invited artist, with her work automatically accepted for the exhibition.

The piece traveled across the state, spending time in the South Dakota Art Museum, Dahl Arts Center, Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center, and John A. Day Gallery in 2019-2020.

“This is a great honor, and I am pleased that the state of South Dakota will give ’Buffaloed‘ a good home,” she said.
