The fourth exhibition of the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery’s 2017-2018 programming year continues through March 23.

Ancestors/Descendants is fiber artist Jason Pollen’s most recent body of work. It has reconnected him with the exuberant world of children at play. With fervor, determination and undiminished curiosity, he gives shape to form using pigments, brushes, threads and twigs that he fashions into compelling dimensional constructions. Pollen intends his work to be thought provoking and to communicate his fascination with and delight in “child’s play”.

Admission is always free. Visitors may park in available visitor slots near the Home Economics building or in metered stalls located in the Nebraska East Union parking lot. For additional information, go to the gallery’s website at
