Visit Bone Creek Museum and participate in an associated outreach event on June 30 at Hruska Memorial Library in David City.
On June 30, Humanities scholars Kathryn Benzel and Mike Adams will present the music of Woody Guthrie and discuss the Dust Bowl Era at the Hruska Memorial Library in David City.
“It’s a privilege to be a part of this museum’s interdisciplinary efforts in making humanities accessible to the general population and encouraging humanities development in Nebraska. Especially, the proposed exhibition on rural life, Ballad of the Farm, is the kind of experience that reminds audiences of the significance that the Great Plains, farming, and rural life have in our history and heritage. The museum’s approach to this exhibition is unique, mixing the old and the new and asking contemporary artists to create pieces especially for the theme. In addition to the exhibit itself, the suggested outreach events bring together all the humanities—visual art, history, literature, music—in a comprehensive picture of life of the prairie, in the past, today, and in the future.” –Kathryn N. Benzel, Professor Emeritus, University of Nebraska-Kearney
The opening reception for Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow is scheduled for Saturday, May 23 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Watch for more information in the mail.
