Bode opening reception

October 21, 2022 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for the opening reception for the Rodney Bode exhibition in the Atrium and new exhibit space in the NAC boardroom. The curators from Gallery Six13 will be in and we will be showing the Bode documentary sharing the life of Rodney Bode.

Rodney Bode is an American painter and sculptor whose life and art have remained outside the boundaries of culture. Born in 1941, and having lived most of his adult life in rural Idaho and South Dakota, Bode is an outsider artist whose vast collection of paintings and sculpture were only recently discovered after his institutionalization in the South Dakota state psychiatric hospital where he is being treated for schizoaffective disorder and vascular dementia. Bode is 81 years old as of September.
