Bismarck Art & Galleries Association is among 10 recipients of a first round of Arts in Education Collaboration grants awarded by the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
The grant, which is designed to increase access to arts education for K-12 students, will help to provide funds to BAGA for an exhibition of the work of South Dakota artist Dick Termes. This project will include two workshops at each of the Bismarck and Mandan public high schools for math and art students with Termes.
Termes' work, "Termespheres" will be on exhibit at BAGA, 422 E. Front Ave., from March 6 through April 20. A reception and opening talk will be held at BAGA on March 6 with a presentation by Termes at 5 p.m. and the reception at 5:30 p.m. To see examples of this art form, visit www.termespheres.com.
“I feel bringing in Mr. Dick Termes will show students the benefits of cross-curriculum collaboration. It will also show the students that mathematics can be used to create amazing artwork, not just for solving problems," said Brad Lies, an art instructor at Century High School.
The application deadline for the next round of Arts in Education Collaboration grants is April 1. For more information, call 701-328-7593 or visit www.nd.gov/arts.
