The Barnes County Museum is hosting North Dakota Student Art Show from Oct. 8-31.

Since 1998, the Taube Museum of Art has hosted the annual North Dakota Student Art Show. Each spring, teachers of K-12 in North Dakota schools select student artwork to enter in the exhibition, which is juried at the Taube Museum of Art in Minot. Of the hundreds of entries each year, jurors select three pieces for the Governor’s Award, to be hung in Gov. Doug Burgum’s office, four for the State of the Arts Award, sponsored by Sen. Kevin Cramer, four for the Northern Visions Award, sponsored by Sen. John Hoeven, and five for the Congressional Art Award, sponsored by Congressman Kelly Armstrong. These selections will be hung in their offices the following year.

An additional 100 selections, including the Taube Museum of Art award winners, the People’s Choice, and Spotlight award winners, become a traveling exhibit for the following year.

This year’s judges were Arvin K. Davis Jr., artist and educator, and Justin Anderson, director of the Minot Area Council on the Arts. Out of a total of 610 submissions this year, they selected 86 to be included in the traveling exhibit.

The Taube Museum of Art annually promotes a diverse selection of exciting artist exhibitions, children’s art programs, as well as a variety of annual events. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill its mission of enriching lives through the visual arts. Proceeds benefit the Taube Museum of Art, a non-profit art organization.


The Barnes County Museum is located at 315 Central Ave. North, Valley City.
