The Gallery Collections
In 1969, under the advisement of English Professor Catherine Cater, the student government of North Dakota State University began investing a portion of the student activity fee to purchase fine art for the student body. A group of students, faculty, and staff began meeting to explore various funding opportunities and, with matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, began purchasing contemporary art. Today, the art collection has grown to over 400 pieces. Areas of focus within the collection include contemporary Native American art, Midwestern regional art, and work by NDSU students and alumni.
