Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls
This year, the AIA South Dakota Emerging Professionals took part in a tour of the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore and group build to benefit the sixth annual ReStoration Art Auction. Members of this group were encouraged to tour the ReStore, located in Sioux Falls, to find objects that could be re-purposed into works of art.
We are proud to say that AIA SD EPs were able to design, create and donate 7 items this year! Each young professional who contributed to this Art Auction was challenged to flex and develop their design abilities and craftsmanship while finding an opportunity in a Restore item. See below for the items donated by the Emerging Professionals this year!

And remember, join on us April 20th to bid on one of these or any of the 90 plus items donated! This free event features online bidding of upcycled art pieces and furniture on Earth Day weekend to benefit Habitat for Humanity’s mission of affordable housing for all!
Event also includes live art performances, music by the Bangtail Band, cash bar and dessert bar.
