There is one week left to visit the Say It Loud: South Dakota exhibit in the Jerstad Gallery of the Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center in Sioux Falls!
This exhibit, curated by Pascale Sablan, FAIA, NOMA, LEED AP, and Beyond the Built Environment was opened September 26th 2023, in conjunction with the AIA South Dakota annual convention.
SAY IT LOUD South Dakota, presented by the American Institute of Architects South Dakota (AIA SD) and the Sioux Falls Design Center, features projects by 25 women and diverse design professionals and offers interviews about their experiences in the architecture and design professions.
SAY IT LOUD South Dakota is made possible by generous support from McGough Construction, Lloyd Companies, Gage Brothers, Koch Hazard Architects, Interstate Office Products, Journey Group, Syverson Tile & Stone, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, the Sioux Falls Women’s Alliance, Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center, and the South Dakota chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).
This exhibit will be hosted in Rapid City in the summer of 2024 and submissions are open to women and people of color who live/work in South Dakota and have had a significant contribution to the built environment.
Submissions should exhibit design achievement that demonstrates exemplary skill and creativity in the resolution and integration of formal, functional, and technical requirements, including ecological stewardship and social responsibility.
