The Sioux City Art Center recently held a grand reopening on September 28, 2019 to show the public the newly renovated facility and feature the new Gilcrest Learning Center.   

Part of the renovation includes an updated “Hands on! Gallery”. 

The Junior League of Sioux City was instrumental in opening the gallery back in 1997. 

Junior League Committee Chair for the “Hands on! Gallery” Rhonda Henry showed Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer (who is also a Junior League member) around the children’s attraction that is already attracting a young crowd.

Coming up on The Exchange, we talk with Woodbury County Auditor Pat Gill about next week’s primary election.

Gill also addresses new changes in Iowa’s voter ID law.  

Also, a new exhibit at the SC Art Center’s hands-on gallery and more. 

We will learn about a new effort to understand the immigrant experience in Siouxland and learn about the legacy of a lynching that took place in Omaha a century ago.

We will preview Riverssance which is coming up this weekend in Riverside Park.

Scottish percussionist, Evelyn Glennie helps the SCSO kick off their 104th season. There's Detroit soul at Vangarde, the Art Center has a grand re-opening and things are getting corny in Danbury and the Sioux City International Film Festival opens at the Promenade.

This week on The Exchange, we remember Capt. Al Haynes, the pilot who saved more than 180 passengers aboard United Flight 232 30 years ago.  He died Sunday.

We catch up with Neligh, Nebraska farmer Art Tanderup and discuss the likelihood of the TC Energy Pipeline being built after a court ruling prevented a move that would have delayed the project.  Tanderup gave some of the land destined for the pipeline to the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska for the planting of their sacred corn.

"The expressions that each of these subjects has is natural. It's what we might otherwise, you know, read as blank. It allows us to continue that story with themselves because they're not expressing any strong emotion, they just leave everything up to the viewer," says Behrens. "And that's what really captivated us when we first encountered Kristine's photos and we're really delighted that we can bring these to Sioux City to show what great documentary photography can be".

"Some of the patterns that he creates will start to, I think trigger some things in your brain. And that is conscious on his part," says Behrens. "He recognizes that the complexity of his compositions will require you to really look hard."
