Artist collective finds space in Ho-Chunk Centre

Local News

It’s a new home in Sioux City, but with the same amazing offerings for a group of local artists.

The recent sale of the Benson Building left 14 artists without a space to work. 

Thanks to some help from folks at HCI Real Estate the group has a new home in the Ho-Chunk Centre.

What was formally a clinic has been converted into a large work studio.

Local artist Brian Damon said that even though space is smaller, it brings a stronger sense of community to the group.

“What it is, is even though we were an artist community in a sense, in the Benson Building, we were somewhat disjointed and our contact with each other was limited,” said Damon. 

The artists said that another advantage is that space provides a gallery near the atrium so more people can see their works.
