Artists asked to interpret local history

The Timber Lake and Area Museum is looking for artists. The art project was envisioned years ago by the late Jim Nelson, who suggested a series of original paintings to be hung in front of the duct work in the main gallery. Together, the art pieces would tell the history of the area, especially Dewey and Corson counties, and the Cheyenne River and Standing Rock reservations.
