Sidney Ellin MacNee enrolled at Northwest Iowa Normal School in 1956, an education major from Storm Lake. With guidance from Karl Wasserman, NIN’s one-person art department, Sidney minored in art and participated in end-of-the-academic-year exhibits. She graduated in 1959 and found a teaching position at Fort Dodge, then entered the Peace Corps when President Kennedy established that volunteer program and invested two years in equatorial Africa.
“Night Stand” came from the 1959 student exhibit at the end of her junior year.
