Program areas at Washington Pavilion Management

The kirby science discovery center (ksdc) and the visual arts center (vac) continued to deliver meaningful experiences that inspire and entertain the community while focusing on safety and promoting inclusion. Despite the challenges presented by covid-19 and the inherently hands-on and interactive nature of the museums, attendance totaled 70,285 guests. Museums staff found new ways to connect with members, brought in exciting touring exhibits, and spent time improving the team and the customer experience.highlights of the 2020-2021 fiscal year for the ksdc included hosting traveling exhibits and installing a new permanent exhibit called grow it!, which features more than 3,000 square feet of agriculture-themed exhibits. These new interactive experiences, as part of the third floor's dedication to all things south dakota, inspire children to connect, engage and learn while having tons of fun. Hosted traveling exhibits were forever forest, which explores the conservation of forest resources, and storyland, which transforms three beloved and award-winning picture books--"the tale of peter rabbit" by beatrix potter, "the snowy day" by ezra jack keats and "where's spot?" By eric hill into true-to-life play and bilingual (english and spanish) learning environments.the vac hosted 25 individual exhibitions featuring artists from all over the world, as well as the highest caliber artists from south dakota. The vac inaugurated the young artists gallery in the last year as a mission-centric initiative, giving the Pavilion the opportunity to seek up-and-coming talent within the community and give them access to a professional gallery experience. In the last fiscal year, the vac featured 35 students from dakota state university and their wire-constructed wildlife exhibition entitled "shadow casting." With the help of guests' smart phone flashlights, this exhibit brought to life static animal sculptures in a vivid animation of light and shadow. The bates trimble gallery came about as a collaboration between the Pavilion and generous supporters in an effort to seek out the best in south dakota, featuring art of all mediums. The bates trimble gallery featured prominent south dakota artists including joe schaeffer, ceca cooper, nick poppens, anna reich and jessie rasche.the Washington Pavilion has increased its focus on its volunteer teams, the guest experience, community partnerships and overall investments in both the ksdc and vac. Special events, including favorites like ag day, spooky science and the sidewalk arts festival, continue to be a major part of what the Pavilion offers its community. In the last year, each of these events looked a bit different in response to the global pandemic. However, they all took place and contributed to museum attendance in a safe and inclusive way. The Washington Pavilion was grateful to welcome many new sponsors and supporters in both of its accredited museum spaces in the last fiscal year.below is a list of some of the larger projects and exhibitions that launched in the kirby science discovery center in 2020-21: completed grow it!

The Washington Pavilion's education department strives to provide outstanding educational opportunities for people in sioux falls and the surrounding area through outreach, classes, professional development and special events. Education programming reaches a wide cross-section of the region. The Pavilion's education department worked to continue its mission of providing art and science experiences to the community throughout the pandemic. When possible, it continued to offer in-person preschool and camps and provided virtual opportunities for community groups and schools who were unable to visit the facility. Graham academy preschoolthe graham academy preschool program provides for the "whole child" by encouraging exploration and problem-solving skills, creativity and social and emotional growth coupled with the opportunity to interact with kirby science discovery center exhibits, visual arts center exhibitions and husby performing arts center programming. Forty-two students attended the graham academy preschool in the 2020-2021 school year.action arts and sciencethe Washington Pavilion action arts and science program (aasp) began in 1999 with a mission to bring high-quality art and science experiences to children with limited access to extracurricular activities. Aasp was unable to provide instruction and programming in the schools during the 2020-2021 school year. The aasp coordinator worked diligently to provide virtual instruction and supply kits to each of the Pavilion's partner sites. Despite the logistical challenges, aasp was able to reach an average of 200 students each week. Aasp partner sites for 2020-2021 included: sioux falls school district kids Inc. at eight elementary schools, kidstop program, kidz count program and the boys & girls club ignite (horizons, east 14th street and sneve avenue location).the south dakota department of education's 21st century community learning center grant generously supports aasp.special events- ag friday, an annual event celebrated as part of national agriculture week, was not held in 2021. However, the Pavilion's education department was able to provide "ag on the go" kits to 375 students in the community.- the artwork of 250 students was on display in "off the fridge" exhibitions in the Pavilion's second floor lobby during the 2020-2021 school year.
The Washington Pavilion hosts performances and events in the mary w. sommervold hall, the belbas theater and the orpheum theater center.

The Washington Pavilion presents additional mission-related performances and collaborates with major producers, promoters and organizations so they may rent facilities at the Washington Pavilion and the orpheum theater center to display all that the arts have to offer.because of the pandemic, eight engagements were canceled or postponed during the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
