Join us for the opening of a new exhibition “From Paint Brushes to Camera Lenses: Creative Women of the Great Plains” during Lincoln’s First Friday Art Walk.

Paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs from the permanent collection highlight the creative spirit of women artists. Artist such as Juane Quick-to-See Smith, Tonita Pena, Terry Evans, Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie, Martha Pettigrew, and Anne Burkeholder are just a few of the artists featured.

At 6 p.m. Emily Rau, Great Plains Graduate Fellow and Willa Cather Archive managing editor, will give a short talk about one of the Plains’ most enduring women, Willa Cather. Sept. 21, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of Willa Cather’s beloved novel, “My Ántonia.” The enduring legacy of this novel continues to resonate with Nebraskans today, as explored in the Cather Archive’s series of events celebrating the novel throughout Nebraska this year.

This event is free and open to the public.
