Mayor TenHaken unveils City Hall art exhibits

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - City Hall has received a visual upgrade.

Mayor Paul TenHaken and the Sioux Falls Arts Council introduced the first pieces of a rotating art exhibit on Friday.

The pieces will rotate every few months and will display works from artists across the region.

The mayor said the hope is to showcase the talented artisans who contribute so much to the community.

Artist Rodger Ellingson, whose painting called "The Band" was selected for the exhibit, said it was inspired by his son's time in the Lincoln High School band.

"It's one of my favorites, just because of the band connection, the State connection and just, I like it," he said.

Artists interested in showcasing their art should contact the Sioux Falls Arts Council.
