The Rourke At Sixty

Now Seeking Oral History Contributors!

The Rourke Gallery first opened its doors on 18 June 1960 in the Moorhead Daily News building on Third Street. The trajectory of the visual arts in the Red River Valley was forever changed. To celebrate and honor the history of this integral institution, we will embark on collecting the memories, voices, and traditions of its storied past. These histories will become a part of the public record and will be available for generations to come in The Rourke Archives.

Let us know if you're interested by emailing We will be in touch with interview details and arrangements. 

We're on Instagram!
