The arts and athletics are two different fields of talent that rarely overlap.
With the 97th annual Gypsy Days celebration out in full force this week, the Aberdeen community is showing its support for the Northern Wolves by attending a number of campus events. Without a doubt, the most exciting Northern event this weekend will be the Gypsy Days football game at Swisher Field, where the Wolves will showcase their athletic abilities against Minot State. The football stadium will be packed with maroon and gold, and the fans will be eagerly cheering on NSU.
Production Monkeys has also shown its support for Northern State athletics. Recently, the Northern State Barnett Center underwent a $3.2 million renovation project. The athletic facility features state-of-the-art locker rooms, a new wrestling room, and a spacious wellness center. Northern reached out to us for our design services to create vivid, digital images to embellish the pillars spaced between the glass panels of the wellness center.
Each pillar features an athlete from one of the athletic departments here at Northern, whether it be baseball, track, cross country, volleyball, wrestling, tennis, golf, or football.
Having these images spaced throughout the wellness center really adds a great dynamic to the structural design of the Barnett Center, and gives an artistic feel to the athletic side of Northern. Check them out when you’re on campus – you’ll have to admit they look pretty good together. Happy Gypsy Days – Go Wolves!
