About this event
Description: 
A River Runs Through It February 26 – July 21, 2019 In Paul A. Johnsgard’s book, Crane Music: A Natural History of American Cranes, the author writes, “There is a river in the heart of North America that annually gathers together the watery largess of melting Rocky Mountain snowfields and glaciers and spills wildly down the eastern slopes of Colorado and Wyoming. Reaching the plains, it quickly loses its momentum and begins to spread out and flow slowly across Nebraska from west to east. As it does so, it cuts a sinuous tracery through the native prairies that has been followed by millennia by both men and animals. The river is the Platte.” This exhibition explores the artwork inspired by the Platte River – from the sounds and sights of the land, flora, and fauna that surround, inhabit, and visit it to the sky that stretches far above. Works included are by such artists as Leoda Davis, Terry Evans, Michael Forsberg, Paul Johnsgard, Karen Kunc, Tom Mangelsen, Joel Sartore, Wendy Weiss & Jay Kramer, Worthington Whittredge, among others.
