Not Too Far Distant Student Matinee (Read More)

A new play by Becky Boesen, commissioned by History Nebraska, inspired by the life of Clarence Williams “It’s almost unbelievable that anyone could be hardened to the point of doing the brutal things they did…” A young man from the midwest is sent to war, carrying with him the hopes of the free world. What Staff Sergeant Clarence Williams encounters there challenges and changes humanity forever. History touches the present when a new generation takes a journey through time to experience World War II alongside Clarence himself. Centered around his personal letters home, we learn that sometimes what seems so far away is much closer than we think. Filled with hope and heart, Not Too Far Distant honors the experience of the American soldier and reminds us that we all have the power – and the responsibility – to help create a brighter future.

Flora, Fauna, and Family Exhibition (Read More)

This exhibition is a survey of works by the late Gladys M Lux. Her grandmother began her art education by teaching her china painting, and she also learned to paint in watercolors and draw. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nebraska, Ms. Lux began teaching art at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1927. During the forty years she taught at Nebraska Wesleyan University, she inspired many students to believe as she did that “there is an artist in everyone.” Talented as both an artist and educator, her collection of over 450 prints is on view year-round to continue its initial purpose of bringing world-class art to the people of Nebraska. The LUX Print Gallery is located on the second floor of the Lux Center for the Arts. Gallery hours are 12 - 6PM, Tuesday - Friday and 10AM - 5PM on Saturday.
