About this event
Description: 
Join us for the opening of our newest exhibition: "Recent Acquisitions: Highlights from the Great Plains Art Museum Permanent Collection." This exhibition highlights the generosity of the museum’s donors by featuring artwork that has entered the permanent collection in recent years. Also on view: “In the Bohemian Alps: Photographs by Michael Farrell” September 6–December 21, 2019 The “Bohemian Alps” is a region of rolling loess hills that sits like an overturned bowl on the tabletop of eastern Nebraska between the Platte River to the north and Lincoln to the south, David City to the west and Wahoo to the east. A visitor driving the gravel roads will notice the many Czech names on the mailboxes and on the gravestones in the rural community cemeteries, and thus become aware of the continuity of family landowners and the care they have bestowed on the land during the 140 years since it was settled by their immigrant ancestors. – Michael Farrell This event is free and open to the public. Parking is usually available at the Que Place garage at 11th and Q streets, but please note there is construction in the area.
