NOTSTOCK is an annual live, hands-in, hands-on arts event held at Minot State University every fall since 2007. NOTSTOCK is a portmanteau derived from the words Woodstock, Flatstock, and Minot’s mantra, “Why not, Minot?” This signature arts event has fostered education, opportunity, engagement, and exposure to the arts. NOTSTOCK has showcased poster art, ceramics, poetry, writing, film, theatre, foreign language, broadcasting, dance and music. This exhibit features poster art made by NOTSTOCK printmaking artists. Guests have ranged from newcomers to those who are nationally recognized and honored for their work. Artists have come to Minot State University to work, collaborate, and share their knowledge, talents and experiences with MSU students, K-12 and postsecondary students and teachers, community members, and other guests who attend and participate. The event has evolved from a one-day event with one artist in 2007 to a multi-day event with multiple artists and art forms.
