PIERRE, S.D. – The Redlin Art Center will sponsor an “Evening with Terry Redlin and Lee Greenwood” Aug. 6 on the center’s grounds in Watertown. Redlin will meet with fans and sign prints and collectibles. Greenwood will give a free outdoor concert followed by a fireworks finale. “We are very pleased to be able to bring such a talented musician to South Dakota for a free performance,” said Julie Ranum, executive director of the Redlin Art Center. “Greenwood’s music is much like Terry Redlin’s artwork. They both depict the American experience in a meaningful way.” Greenwood is best known for “God Bless the USA,” which was voted the most recognizable patriotic song in 2003. He has performed televised concerts on “Entertainment Tonight,” Fox News Channel’s “Salute to U.S. Troops,” “Good Morning, America,” Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, “Today Show” and “Tonight Show.” The Redlin Art Center in Watertown permanently displays more than 150 of Redlin’s original oil paintings, including the “America the Beautiful” and “An American Portrait” series. Designed by Redlin’s son Charles, the 52,000-square-foot facility has greeted more than 1.9 million visitors from across the country. Admission to the Redlin Art Center is free.
