“From Catlin to Rando” represents paintings, prints and photographs collected by Mark Strand, Fargo, since 1968.
Some will remember Strand’s show at the Arts Center from last summer of a five-year photo documentary project about Jamestown, its historic architecture and the surrounding landscape. Some of the works in this show influenced those photographs, for example, painter George Catlin’s Dakota landscapes and John Szarkowski’s photographs of Chicago architecture.Find out more

The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want to get even: Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf. Parts will be assigned and lead roles will be expected to study their parts throughout the month of June. Camp meets in the Arts Center Gallery.Find out more
