  • We've gone several times. There's some neat things, but most of it looks like a middle school art class. The only really cool events there are paid, and they want a fortune for what you get.
  • Must see Arts Center in Rapid City. Everyone there is friendly and awesome. Lost of different events to go to and multiple changing Art Galleries to go see. Great place for established local artists, but also for emerging artists. Friday night emerging artist music performances are a must see. Also the gift shop full of unique pieces from local artists.
  • I have visited the Dahl numerous times over the past several months. The exhibits and events taking place at the Center are always interesting and educational, however there are some issues with other areas of the Dahl operations that unfortunately make for lower than a stellar rating. For example, the Dahl has a gift shop showcasing work of local artists, but the gift shop is rarely staffed and almost never promoted. That results in rather poor public interest in this space and what it has to offer. In addition, the management staff in charge of this space is frequently changing, which exacerbates already poor performance of the gift shop. Last but not least, Dahl is located a bit off the beaten path frequented by visitors to our city, and that, coupled with poor efforts at promoting the Dahl in tour guide brochures, results in low numbers of seasonal visitors. This space could be a hub of artistic activity in town if only it was promoted and staffed better.
  • This free art gallery was a pleasant diversion in Rapid City. Overall, a fine stop.
  • Very nice
