Bridges, Sharing Our Past to Enrich the Future

In collaboration with the Hildegard Center for the Arts, the Great Plains Art Museum will host the statewide traveling photography exhibition, "Bridges: Sharing Our Past to Enrich the Future," as part of Nebraska's 150th Sesquicentennial. This juried exhibition serves as a bridge to connect Nebraskans with their culture and heritage highlighting historic places and often over-looked historical treasures in all 93 counties. 


Rising: Lari R. Gibbons

Lower-level Lentz Gallery
March 3 – June 24, 2017

An interest in habitat loss and the migration of invasive species led Gibbons to use data sets as the basis for new patterns in her abstract compositions. Gibbons creates a unique form of “deep mapping” by transforming scientific data into abstracted visual representations. Gibbons is compelled by evidence of climate change and the cascade of effects on the environment, including rising sea levels, rising temperatures—and perhaps most importantly—the probability of accelerated rates of change over time.
