As a part of Augustana College, the mission of the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery is to contribute to the educational and cultural vitality of the College, the surrounding community, and the state of South Dakota. The Eide/Dalrymple Gallery inspires the artists of today and tomorrow, and serves as a resource for teaching and promoting life-long learning through its permanent collection and temporary exhibition program with accompanying artist visits, gallery talks, and educational materials.
As Augustana’s primary art display space, the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery hosts an average of nine exhibits per year, including Augustana’s senior art show. The gallery also exhibits the work of professional artists, who discuss their careers and art with students in master classes and with the general public during opening receptions.
The gallery houses one of the most important collection of European and American original prints in the Midwest. The Carl Grupp Collection includes works of Picasso, Chagall, Winslow Homer, Whistler, Matisse and Rouault. Recently retired art professor emeritus Carl Grupp is a nationally acclaimed printmaker and was instrumental in developing and expanding Augustana’s prestigious print collection.
The Eide/Dalyrmple Gallery is named after pioneering Augustana art professors Palmer Eide and Ogden Dalrymple. Many of their collaborative works are spread throughout the campus, such as “The Muse” outside the Center for Visual Arts, "Hindsight, Insight and Foresight" (The Owls) by Morrison Commons and “The Bears” by the Humanities building, "The Sower" inside the Chapel, and "Creatures of Creation" on the east side of Mikkelsen Library.
