Daily Life: Dakota Prairie Murals

<< Back to Daily Life

Six women artists from Madison, SD painted these murals for the Museum. The ladies said, "It was truly a labor of love as we worked together. We wanted to mainly tell you that pioneer life was also a time of nature's beautiful rewards and happiness. Our gratitude to our pioneers was our silent prayer. We sincerely hope you enjoy the panels." The art themes on the panels were mutually selected by all of the group. These murals have to be seen in their actual size to appreciate the paintings, the details & colors.
