No goal is too high. #Repost @museumofnebraskaart with @get_repost ・・・ From the late 1980s to the mid ‘90s, self-taught artist Reece Crawford awoke to “visions” of people in her North Omaha, Nebraska community and felt compelled to make small sculptures of them. Created over the span of a few short years, the resulting vibrant, colorful, animated works are an ode to the artist’s community, as she found inspiration from African and American history as well as her imagination. “Reece Crawford: Visions of a Community” is now on view at MONA. #nebraskaart #omaha #artofomaha #visitkearney #visitnebraska #neartscouncil #humanitiesne Reece Crawford (Tocho) Me and Mom, glue, paint, shredded paper, 1991 Museum of Nebraska Art Collection

Thomas Hart Benton was named for his legendary grand-uncle, a Democratic senator when Missouri entered the Union. From early childhood, Benton traveled with his father a lawyer and congressman on political tours, observing the country. These early experiences deeply rooted in him a respect for rural and small-town people, resurfacing at a later time and coming into full bloom with the art of the Regionalists. #thomashartbenton #oregontrail #nebraskaart #neartscouncil #visitkearney #visitnebraska Thomas Hart Benton Buffalo Hunter gouache, ink; 1945 Museum Purchase made possible by Cliff Hillegass, CliffsNotes, Thomas Creigh, Lorraine Rohman, Ellen Qualsett, Joe & Pauline Dye, Betty Becker-Theye & Larry Theye, Larry Peterson, Tom Pollard, Gary Zaruba, Brendan McDonald, John Clabaugh Framing made possible by Jerry & Tami Hellman Museum of Nebraska Art Collection

Eric Berggren’s interest in woodcarving began when he was a small boy watching his uncle ‘whittle’ influenced as well by the rich ancestral traditions of Scandinavian folk art. Most of Berggren’s sculptures were created to be completely utilitarian, however heir functional purpose did not restrict his creative intuition. Carved on American elm, the pieces are narrative, and borrow from many archetypal classical, mythological, and legendary stories. #nebraskaart #woodcarving #neartscouncil #humanitiesne #visitkearney #visitnebraska Eric Berggren Untitled #2 , carved wood, 1965 Gift of Frances Berggren Estate, Museum of Nebraska Art

Every spring I travel to Nebraska to watch one of the greatest shows on earth... the sandhill crane migration. Roughly 500,000 sandhill cranes will stop over in the Platte River during their annual migration. During the evenings you can find me photographing from photography blinds along the river as thousands of birds fill up the sky as they fly into the river to root for the night. Want to join me this year? I am still have a few spots left. Click on the link to learn more. https://www.experiencewildlife.com/p/sandhill-crane-works

This guy was really letting us have it the other morning. He was ticked off that we were invading his space. I didn’t have my zoom lens but I think it turned out pretty good!
I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time yesterday. This hawk also patiently waited for me to get my zoom lens on. So handsome!
Check out our new horse! We got the saddle to fit kiddos and now they can be the Lone Ranger!🏇🏻
I love the frosty railing in the forefront, river running off into the horizon and the giant blue sky. This pic makes me happy 😊
So much fun celebrating our 30th birthday, a balloon ribbon cutting, and the launch to our campaign to raise $30,000! Thank you all for the support! . It was great to have some founding board members at the museum today too! If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be here today!

Walking on the ice terrifies me so I won’t do it until it’s about a foot thick 😬 But I also love it. Seeing the world from an angle you only can a few weeks a year. The frozen underwater world you can peer into when the ice is clear. It’s pretty cool. Feels like you’re part of a secret world.
