"Our students have access through PALS (the inter-library loan system) to get materials for instruction. Research and best practices in art education come from Perpich. It is the Perpich Center that provides the leadership in implementing the art standards in K-12 schools."

— Kathryn Gainey, Professor of Art, St. Cloud State University:
