Project Needs

The South Dakota State Historical Society has a rare opportunity to capitalize on national and international attention generated by the inclusion of the Great Sioux Horse Effigy in the recent touring exhibition of The Plain Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky. With New York Times art critic Holland Cotter referring to the artifact as belonging in the “highest pantheon” of North American sculpture, we have an opportunity to call attention to our fantastic collection of artifacts, the importance of the work we do and how our work is regarded around the world.
