Join us for the opening reception for a new photography exhibit, “In the Bohemian Alps,” where photographer Michael Farrell will give a short talk at at 6 p.m. The exhibition runs from Sept. 6 through December 21.

Michael Farrell has visited the region’s glacier-and-wind carved loess hills every few weeks since spring 2017 to photograph the various features of the landscape: small streams, old steel bridges, dilapidated buildings, minimum maintenance roads, and other out-of-the-way places. Farrell is an assistant professor of practice in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communications at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. He is also a 47-year veteran of public media, 45 of which have been spent in the production and management of documentaries about the culture, history and environment of Nebraska and the Great Plains. Farrell’s work has appeared in “Nebraska History” magazine, “NEBRASKAland Magazine,” and various books.

The Great Plains Art Museum, 1155 Q St., is open to the public 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and admission is always free.

Additional Public Info:
Parking is usually available in the Que Place parking garage, but please note there is construction in the area.
