Vermillion, South Dakota (AP) 2-09

Officials at the University of South Dakota say family members of the late Oscar Howe, an American Indian artist, have donated $50,000 to USD.

Howe’s widow, Heidi Howe, and their daughter, Inge Dawn Maresh, made the donation.

Officials at USD say the money will be used for a Native American Museum and Academic Center, which is in the planning stage.

The center, as proposed, is to feature a museum dedicated to Howe’s legacy and more gallery space for exhibits of contemporary Northern Plains Indian artists.
