Wings Over the Platte Closing Reception

GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – The Wings Over the Platte art exhibit and sale goes out with a bang during an artist reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday, April 3. The show is free and open to the public and is on exhibit at Bartenbach’s Venue, 209 North Locust Street in Downtown Grand Island.

For more than 20 years, the “Wings Over the Platte” Art Exhibit and Sale has been one of the largest, most prestigious art shows in the area, with state, regional and national artists depicting their vision of life on the Platte River and its tributaries. This year is no exception, as breathtaking subject matter collides with dozens of artist’s sensibilities to produce a show unlike any other in the area. Whether you live in Central Nebraska or are visiting in order to see the Sandhill Crane Migration, “Wings Over the Platte” is a must see.

Stuhr Museum wants to thank Bartenbach’s for hosting this show for a second year while the Stuhr Building is under renovation. The show will return to the Stuhr Building in 2016, but we urge all who are interested in art, ecology, or the sandhill crane migration to come out to this wonderful show.

Wings Over the Platte is made possible with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The Nebraska Arts Council, a state agency, has supported this arts event through its matching grants program funded by the Nebraska Legislature and the national endowment for the arts, and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
