Visitors to the Cultural Heritage Center Museum in Pierre have just a few more days to visit the exhibition “From the Collection: Quilts” featuring the collection of the South Dakota State Historical Society. The exhibition in the museum’s Hogen Gallery runs through Sunday, Oct. 1.
“We were delighted to share so many quilts from our collection,” said museum director Jay Smith. “We will do more exhibits featuring pieces from the collection in the future, but right now we are getting the Hogen Gallery ready for the next exhibit, ‘The Spirit of the ‘70s.’”
The new exhibit will feature graphics and artifacts from the 1970s in South Dakota and around the nation. It will open on Nov. 18.
The museum is open from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CDT Monday through Saturday, and 1-4 p.m. on Sundays and most holidays.
