From the Fields to the Sky

January 17 – March 23, 2012 –

Since the time of the Lascaux cave drawings created over 17,000 years ago, humanity has looked to the environment for insight, inspiration, and a sense of connectivity to the natural world. From the Fields to the Sky exemplifies the diversity in which artists have chosen to investigate the flora and fauna of the land through paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, photographs, and artists’ books from the Museum of Nebraska Art’s permanent collection.
