The art of 37 University of Nebraska alumni is featured in a new exhibit organized by the Department of Art and Art History. The exhibit, “UNL Alumni Artists, 1945-1969: Your Story Begins Here,” is in the Eisentrager•Howard Gallery in Richards Hall.
The gallery is accessible 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Visitors should go to room 120 to see the exhibit.
First Friday receptions are planned from 5 to 7 p.m. June 6 and Aug. 1. The receptions are free and open to the public.
To launch the exhibit, the Department of Art and Art History requested alumni who graduated between 1945-1969 to submit artwork.
“We got a wonderful response to our invitation from the alums, and the three galleries are full of artwork,” said Pete Pinnell, chair of art and art history. “What’s even better is that a lot of the participants sent notes about their careers or memories, so we’ve posted those next to the artworks.”
The department intends to repeat the exhibition in future summers, highlighting different graduation years.
