About this event
Description: 
The museum is open late for Lincoln’s First Friday Art Walk. At 6 p.m., Great Plains Graduate Fellow Baligh Ben Taleb will give a short talk on his research on the American West and the Indian Claims Commission. On view: Montana: From Prairies to Peaks Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence Erin Jones Graf Erin Jones Graf graduated from Montana State University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking and a separate degree in K-12 Art Education. While she is drawn to the manual labor of printmaking and the “chemistry” behind the process, her love has always been painting. The artist’s native Montana is the subject of her exhibition as the 2019 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. She states: “I grew up on the edge of the great plains of Montana, on land that nourished four generations of my family before me…. I paint my home, and my home is expansive. From prairies to peaks, I move along the hay fields and hills, painting the grandeur that is Montana.” American West Masters This exhibition features works from the permanent collection by artists who were key players in picturing the American West. Albert Bierstadt, Ernest Berke, Karl Bodmer, Fremont Ellis, William Henry Jackson, Carl Kauba, Fredric Remington, Charles M. Russell, Olaf Wieghorst, and many others will be included. This event is free and open to the public. Parking is usually available at the Que Place garage at 11th and Q streets. Visit us first as we close at 7 p.m.!
