Art & Creative Writing Portfolio Submission

    Mount Marty University proudly boasts both Art and Creative Writing programs on our main Yankton campus. Campus is home to the always-active Bede Art Gallery, which will feature seven different installments throughout the 2022-2023 academic year. This includes two student art shows - one in the fall, and on in the spring - one Faculty exhibition, and four exhibitions featuring local artists. Each installment includes one reception and gallery talk. Art is a thriving and critical part of Mount Marty University.

    Students and faculty spend the year writing and compiling Paddlefish, the student literary and art journal of Mount Marty University. The 21-22 version featured 26 students showcasing their writing and included several pages of artwork from the Bede Art Gallery student exhibits.
