CRAIG LANGAGER SCULPTURE
IN THE MUSEUM'S
May 4 - July 27, 2014
Seattle-based sculptor Craig Langager offered the North Dakota Museum of Art a selection from his major sculptures for its collection. Many of these works are based on his memories and experiences of being on the Northern Plains in the 1980s and 1990s. The sculpture also reflects his long concern with environmental issues and endangered species.
Langager was born in Seattle, Washington in 1946. Being raised in Aberdeen, South Dakota and attending Northern State University and Bemidji State University, ties Langager to the Northern Plains. This bond to the region led Langager to offer selected pieces from this body of work to the Museum’s collection, to insure that the people of the region have access to significant works of art that are regionally important.
