NDSU to host symposium as part of artist celebration

NDSU, Plains Art Museum, The Red Door Gallery and Museum, Rourke Art Gallery Museum, Fargo Theatre and other organizations are teaming up for “Fritz Fest,” a three-day celebration of artist Fritz Scholder.

NDSU’s Renaissance Hall is set to host an event symposium led by some of the country’s most prominent Scholder scholars – Jessica Horton, assistant professor of art history at the University of Delaware; John Lukavic, associate curator at the Denver Art Museum; and Truman Lowe, emeritus professor of art at the University of Wisconsin.

The symposium is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 6, from 1-4 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Coffee and refreshments will be available.

Scholder, who died in 2005, was a respected and controversial American artist recognized for his commentary of publicly-held stereotypes of Native Americans.

As a student-focused, land grant, research institution, we serve our citizens.
