Frogman’s began humbly back in 1979 when Professor Lloyd Menard led five school teachers from Sioux City, Iowa to the Black Hills of South Dakota for a drawing class. Prints were first introduced in 1981 and the workshops evolved into the Black Hills Print Symposium which took place at various sites in Western South Dakota. The Black Hills set an amazingly beautiful backdrop to the workshops, but by 1996, the workshops had outgrown the confines of the Hills and were moved to Beresford, South Dakota, home of Frogman’s Press & Gallery. The workshops would only spend two years based out of Beresford before moving to nearby Vermillion and the University of South Dakota. This past summer marked Frogman’s first year at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where the Frogman took his first ever print class over 50 years ago. Frogman’s Print Workshops will be celebrating our thirty-sixth anniversary this summer. Frogmans is now operated by Lloyd Menard’s son, Jeremy.
