Welcome to a new era of the arts at Northern State University!

As a member of our community, I know you appreciate the value of having a gem like Northern State’s School of Fine Arts as this region’s cultural hub.  This is truly an extraordinary time for the arts at Northern State, with renovated state-of-the-art facilities, renewed faculty energy, and an exciting collaborative mission.

There is also a new opportunity for you to show support for and participate in the outstanding work of our faculty and students - through the new Friends of the Arts/NSU membership group.  By becoming a member, you affirm the arts as a vital and integral part of our lives, and strengthen Northern State’s capacity to serve this role.

Your membership will also entitle you to a number of attractive benefits and privileges, including complimentary tickets to a host of season events along with the ability to select/reserve your individual seat, special curtain call gatherings for selected concerts, recognition in concert programs, and even the ability to purchase tickets for special concerts and events in advance of the general public.

Your support can help strengthen your love of the arts, and ensure that increasing numbers of our students have greater potential for a fulfilling career in the arts.  Additionally, you will be enhancing the quality of arts education we provide to our students, as well as the dimension of fine arts events benefitting the people of South Dakota and beyond.

We are very excited about our new vision to establish and cultivate a true center for the arts here at Northern State University, and delighted that you would consider joining this effort in an incredibly meaningful way.  For your convenience, you may print out the brochure, fill in the necessary information, and send it to the NSU Foundation Office.

Thank you so much for your support, if you're interested in supporting the arts, please call 605-626-2563.
