Sioux City Art Center celebrates 100 years

Posted:
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -

Sioux City's Art Center kicked off its 100th year celebration Friday evening.

About 250 people came out to the Marina Inn in South Sioux City, Nebraska for the center's centennial party.

Guests even got to do some artwork of their own, and a few lucky winners would be taking home pieces of artwork at the end of the night.

The art center's director said looking back at 100 years ago, 1914 was a revolutionary time for art, but it paved the way for the future.

"Very radical time for art and that continues, continues to this day. A lot of the ideas that were developed then are ideas that artists are still working with," Art Center Director Albert Harris-Fernandez.

Friday's event is expected to raise over $50,000  that will go toward exhibitions and education programs for the arts center.

There will be more special events celebrating 100 years of the art center coming up this summer.
