Officials at Wind Cave National Park are seeking entries for an art show honoring the park’s centennial. The park is sponsoring a show for artists, sculptors, photographers, and poets as part of its hundredth celebration. The centennial celebration will be held over the weekend of June 13-15, 2003; however, artwork may be displayed throughout the summer. The exhibit is designed to showcase art inspired by the mixed-grass prairie ecosystem and underground mazes protected within one of the world’s oldest national parks.
