Every three years, Jundt Art Museum invites five artists to spend two weeks at the museum creating a drawing on an 8-by-11-foot museum wall as part of “Drawn to the Wall.”

The catch? The drawings only last through the end of the exhibition, Aug. 17, when the walls are painted over and once again used as gallery partitions.

The artists selected for “Drawn to the Wall VII” – Jen Erickson, Robert Fifield, Christine Kimball, Dan McCann and Jamie Nadherny – were asked to find “individual, workable solutions to large-scale drawings and to the constraints of working in a ‘common’ environment,” according to the exhibition description.

“Every drawing that was ever done for ‘Drawn to the Wall’ is still in there, on those walls, covered up somehow,” curator of education Karen Kaiser told The Spokesman-Review before “Drawn to the Wall VI” in 2016. “Which is a magnificent thing.”
