Art Installation Ribbon Cutting
The ribbon cutting for the art installation will be August 19, 2021 at 4pm at the SW corner of the Bismarck Events Center, followed by a reception at the Capital Gallery in downtown Bismarck. Three regional artists were selected to create pieces for this project: Keely Perkins, Angie Swiec Kambeitz, and Lacie Van Orman.
The art installation project was formed by the 2020 Leadership Bismarck-Manadan program who worked together with Growing BisMan, Dakota West Arts Council, Capital City Christmas and the Bismarck Event Center.

DMA’s Community Bulletin Board
Dakota Media Access has created a Community Bulletin Board for community-focused organizations to submit announcements.
The Bulletin runs between programs on our streaming platforms and cable channels throughout the day and offers a prominent space to announce your organization’s current and upcoming events, news, or other messaging needs.
You can also include a high-quality graphic (e.g. a logo or photo) or even a video file for use in your announcement.
