The Scherr Howe Event Center
(Home of the Oscar Howe Murals)
Spanning the Scherr-Howe Event Center's interior walls are ten murals painted by the late Oscar Howe as part of a WPA project in April through June of 1942. Five scenes on the southern wall represent “Ceremonies of the Sioux” and five on the northern wall depict “History Along the Missouri”. These larger than life murals are some of the earliest professional works by Howe, a native South Dakotan and a Yanktonai Dakota of the Crow Creek Sioux tribe.
