When visitors come to Pine Ridge there are many opportunities for them to purchase art and support local artists from the Reservation. With the reservation borders closed to non-residents this summer, local artists have had fewer opportunities to sell their work. This virtual art show hopes to provide an opportunity for folks from across the country to support the work of Pine Ridge artists. The art will be available on this page for viewing and purchasing beginning September 6 and continuing through September 12. More information and instructions will be available on September 6.
