The annual exhibition “Celebration of Youth XXIV” continues through September 30th. It showcases the work of youth from around the state who competed at the Nebraska State Fair in the 4-H areas of Clothing, Home Environment, and Quilt Quest.

A special feature of the day’s program is a luncheon for the students and their family members in the Great Hall of the Quilt Museum at which Dr. Jane Schuchardt, former Executive Director of the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy for Cooperative Extension nationwide and a member of the UNL Chancellor’s Alumni Advisory Council, will speak about a special quilt created in her honor.

On Saturday September 30 the exhibitors and their families will participate in a special “Celebration of Youth Day” in TMFD.

The gallery is located on the second floor of the Home Economics Building on East Campus, on 35th Street north of East Campus Loop (map at http://go.unl.edu/j5v). Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and by appointment. Admission is free. Guest parking is available near the building and metered stalls are located in the Nebraska East Union lot.
