The Last Page is a new space to highlight community members of all ages who are helping to create culture in the Fargo-Moorhead area, making it such a wonderful place to live. If you know someone who is making a difference—maybe through their art, volunteering or just being a good person— email firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to us on Twitter and Facebook and let us know.
Local North Dakota State University architecture student and artist Ryan Gapp has a large number of pieces in his first ever show located in The Spirit Room.
“I think the Fargo-Moorhead community is growing to value local art more as time goes on. It’s important to foster this as much as possible. Art is a good way to bring the community together but also to question things. I don’t think ideas and conventions are challenged enough in this community. Architecturally, this is especially true. It is healthy to have honest feedback loops. As far as my art making an impact, I don’t know if it does. I would hope to someday be an inspiration and to not be afraid to try bold things that might fail.”
Gapp appreciates The Spirit Room for taking a chance on him and wants to thank his friends and family for their love and support. The gallery hours for this exhibit are 1-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday through January 15.
