What's the history of the
Plains Art Museum?
Plains Art Museum was established as the
Red River Art Center in 1965 in the former
Moorhead, MN, post office. In 1996-1997,
the Museum took a major leap of faith and
renovated a turn-of-the-20th century former
tractor warehouse in Downtown Fargo. This
created what would eventually become
North Dakota's largest and only accredited
art museum. In 2012, we came full-circle with
our art center roots with an expansion that
created the Katherine Kilbourne Burgum
Center for Creativity, the region's community
center for art making.
What can people expect to see?
The Museum organizes and exhibits over
20 exhibitions each year, so there is always
something new. Our strengths lie in modern
and contemporary art, Native American
work, and regional art.

Anything else you'd like visitors to know?
Thanks to ongoing member and donor support,
Plains Art Museum has free general admission.
Top 5 exhibits you're looking
forward to in 2021?
2021 will include some of the best exhibitions
that Plains Art Museum has ever done, and
some of which have garnered national support.
Here is a small sample:
We will start of the year with the largest
exhibition of the year. Titled High Visibility:
On Location in Rural America and Indian
Country this large and diverse exhibition will
explore contemporary art and communitybased work in rural spaces. This exhibition,
which will end in mid-May 2021 will be
partnered with Every One - one of the most
acclaimed artworks in recent years - by
Cannupa Hanska Luger. This work is dedicated
to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.
In June and July, we will open two more amazing
exhibitions. The first, opening in June, will
celebrate Grupo Soap del Corazon, a collective
of Latinx artists celebrating its 20th anniversary.
In July, we will open an exhibition by
internationally renowned African American
sculptor and printmaker, Chakaia Booker.
