Memorial Union


Permanent Collection



Beginning in 1969, 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. An art selection committee comprised of NDSU 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 several hundred pieces, including work by Andy Warhol, Judy Chicago, Oscar Howe, James Rosenquist, and Jaune Quick-To-See Smith. Areas of focus within the collection include contemporary Native American art, Midwestern regional art, and work by NDSU students and alumni.
