Dr. Suzzanne Kelley on Great Plains memory artists
"Uff Da: The Folk Art of Emily Lunde" is part of the Rural Arts Initiative from the North Dakota Museum of Art, which brings exhibits to all corners of the state. Currently, it's being shown at the Barnes County Historical Society Museum in Valley City.
Dr. Suzzanne Kelley, editor-in-chief of the NDSU Press, wrote her dissertation on Lunde and four other “memory artists” of the Great Plains region, from Texas to Saskatchewan. She joined Main Street to talk about these artists — listen to the conversation above.
