Part of my reason for being in this area is to do a walk in York, NE. My friend said if I could wait until tomorrow than she could go with me. Good plan, for this morning was cloudy and cool. Tomorrow can only be better.
Instead we visiting two museums in Lincoln. Our first stop was the Nebraska History Museum. One exhibit is about the Terri Lee Dolls that were made here in Lincoln for awhile. The exhibit shows a young mother had the idea for a doll, and went into business with her aunt, who rather took over and left the young mother without much say in the business.
The first dolls came out in 1946. They were first made with ethyl cellulose. Each face was hand-painted. They were to be the same and yet each is just a bit different.
Another exhibit involves Nebraska's activities during 20th century wars.
Our next stop was Lux Center, a small art gallery. It presently has an exhibit called Hammer, Anvil, and Stirrup -- actually the bones in an ear. The objects in the exhibit all make sounds.
Here is a video of one. I had to hold the camera and make the sounds at the same time, so the video is a bit jerky. Sorry.
