Outside the museum we found sculptures related to the Lewis and Clark expedition.
The lower level of the museum has an exhibit related to the making of Western movies.
From this museum we walked across the street to the Sheldon Art Museum.
The first exhibit we saw was created by ///. This photographer has done photographs in Guatemala over a period of about 40 years. One interesting part of this exhibit showed the same people from two different times. The signage explained he made prints of his 1970s work and then went back to Guatemala recently to find the same persons.
Her first position was within a psychiatric facility in Lincoln. Thereafter, she always retained an interest in working with persons with disabilities even though she later became part of the Interior Design faculty at the University of Nebraska.
Another exhibit was called Things Speak. Because we both like quilts we were intrigued by this one made from silk cigar wrappers.
Another interesting part of this exhibit related to telephones. A man who ran a mortuary was very upset when a friend died; he had promised to do this person's funeral. However, the operator connected the call from the family to another mortuary. This caused the mortuary director to begin the quest for telephones to dial to specific number rather than having an operator connect the phone call.
From the Sheldon we walked to restaurant called Sebastian's Table. This is a tapa restaurant -- tapas being something neither of us had tried before.
Our last stop was within a fairly new park in Lincoln, called Union Plaza. We wanted to examine the sculpture there better than we had been able to see why driving by.
All in all a great day in Lincoln, made even better by lovely autumn weather and good company.
