Michael Forsberg to Speak at CGPS Sept. 8

On Wednesday, September 8th (tomorrow), the Center for Great Plains Studies is hosting a seminar by Michael Forsberg, the conservation photographer. The seminar is part of the Paul A. Olson Seminars in Great Plains Studies series. It will be from 3:30-5:00 at the Great Plains Art Museum (1155 Q St in Lincoln).

Michael Forsberg is the photographer behind Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild, which PSR blogged about way back last October as part of the Plains Song Review Book Club!

He was a guest speaker in one of my friend's English classes, and my friend said he was really cool, and a great speaker, so this is definitely worth going to!

Art of the Plains at CGPS

Today is the first day of the Great Plains Art Museum's new exhibit: "Art of the Plains 2010." I walked through it earlier this week, and it's an even cooler exhibit than usual! There's a ton of art on the walls, and it's for sale. So if you have some money to spare (as in, a few thousand dollars), or if you just want to look at the art, you should check it out!

The Great Plains Art Museum is located at:
1155 Q Street, P.O. Box 880214
Lincoln, NE 68588-0214

It's open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 to 5:00, and Sunday from 1:30 to 5:00.
Free and open to the public
