My Backyard, 2013, lithograph

Gift to UND from Kim Fink

University Art Collections: Art & Design Study Collection

Describing herself as a “rural North Dakota farm girl” who grew up in the western part of the state, Erica Odermann evolved from having an early interest in agricultural education to earning a BFA with an emphasis in art education at Minnesota State University Moorhead.

The setting of Odermann’s print is her family’s farm, where the current oil boom has had a severe affect on the environment. The animals, as well as people, on farms and ranches now have to coexist and share the same space with oil wells.
