Oil & Water: a Printmaking Exchange
October 16 - November 20
Oil and Water examines the use or mis-use of our natural resources. Whether dealing with issues of flooding and diversion in the Red River Valley or oil development and fracking on the Bakken Oil Formation, printmaking students and faculty from Concordia College, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Minot State University, North Dakota State University, University of Manitoba, University of North Dakota and Valley City State University tackle challenging issues through the medium of printmaking.
The project was coordinated by Heidi Goldberg, Kent Kapplinger, and John Volk. This exhibition is sponsored by the North Dakota Art Gallery Association with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.

Help Support the the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities'
A Pepsi Recycling center that was recently installed in the Memorial Union.
To help PepsiCo reach its goal of increasing the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018, PepsiCo created the Dream Machine recycling initiative. Dream Machines are interactive kiosks that provide students and college and university communities with an easy, convenient and rewarding way to make a difference by recycling their bottles and cans on the go. For every bottle or can students place in the Dream Machine, they receive reward points to redeem for prizes, including local entertainment, dining and more. It's a win-win for everyone.
When you recycle your bottles and cans with PepsiCo Recycling, we provide dedicated support to further the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities' mission to provide training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities resulting from military service.
$2 Million - Pepsico is donating up to $2 Million to EBV with $1.5 million donate since 2010
4.1 Million - pounds of recycled bottles and cans have been collected via PepsiCo Recycling to support EBV.
