Bismarck tribal art gallery offers regular visiting hoursBISMARCK – A gallery in Bismarck that features about 500 pieces of Native American art from artists and tribes around the U.S. and Canada is now offering regular visiting hours.
The United Tribes Art Gallery on the campus of United Tribes Technical College had been open by appointment only. Regular hours were implemented earlier this summer.
College Cultural Arts Program Coordinator Jess Clairmont says officials decided they wanted to share the college’s wealth of art and culture with the community. He says the art collection began about 40 years ago and even some students and staff don’t know about it.
Summer hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.
