SIOUX FALLS – A collection of Native American artwork seized by the Internal Revenue Service will remain at the Washington Pavilion’s Visual Arts Center.

The 16-piece collection on loan to the center for more than a decade was seized from the nonprofit American Indian Services in September because of delinquent tax bill of more than $118,000. The artwork includes sculpture, beadwork, ledger art and other pieces.

The Argus Leader reports that Pavilion President Larry Toll was the only bidder on the aggregate collection on Thursday, placing the minimum $24,750 bid set by the government.

Toll says Augustana College was a major donor to the fund to keep the collection together, and it will be named after the Sioux Falls school.
