Location: Exposure Gallery, 401 N. Phillips Ave., Sioux Falls, SD

To commemorate the seven years that OTA served our three-state region, we will be hosting a month-long, retrospective exhibit of all things OTA.

Posters, programs, name tags, set pieces, stickers. They all held value and helped to piece together a larger vision — a vision that not only brought you together with your community, but inspired you to do more.

And we hope you did.

This exhibit will be a fun reflection of everything we accomplished together and a celebration of all those who helped to make this experiment possible. We can’t wait to bring all sorts of OTA keepsakes into one room.

Speaking of keepsakes, if you have anything you’d like to contribute to this reflective exhibit, we’d love to share it! Pictures from your first OTA experience? Notes that still hold meaning for you today? A pen from a new connection? However OTA influenced you, we’d love to hear it. Email angela@weareota.com.

Join us for a free gallery reception at Exposure on Friday, October 7, beginning at 5 p.m. Exposure will also be part of the Art & Wine Walk for downtown’s First Friday, so it’ll be a fun night on the town! As part of the reception, we also plan to set up a video corner in which we will ask guests to tell us about their favorite OTA memory or experience, so come ready to reminisce! We will then compile that into a video reel to show at our final OTA event in the fall.

Thanks to Zach at Exposure for being such a great help in making this retrospective exhibit happen. Hope to see you all at Exposure in a few weeks!
