A special reception to honor 50 years of Stuhr Museum featuring the artwork of Grant Reynard will be held from 6-8 pm Thursday, October 12th at the Stuhr Building. The reception is celebrating the exhibit "Grant Reynard: 50 Years at Stuhr" which opens Sunday and runs through November 12.
Nationally known Nebraska artist Grant Reynard was the first artist every displayed at Stuhr Museum when we opened our doors in 1967. Fifty years later we will be featuring Reynard's work again with a show running October 8 - November 12. Reynard, who was a Grand Island native, achieved prominence with his illustrations that appeared in the Saturday Evening Post and many other publications.
To celebrate 50 years of operation and the retrospective exhibit we are asking attendees to show up in their best 1960s fashion. From wide brimmed hats and sharp suits to elegant dresses, we want to pack the Stuhr Building with the best looking old-style fashion we can. The reception will also feature free treats from the Chocolate Bar in Grand Island.
This event is free and open to the public so bring your friends. For more information call (308) 385-5316.
