Reinhold Marxhausen was a nationally regarded multi-faceted artist and highly lauded Professor of Art at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska for 40 years. While he worked in photography, mosaic, painting, sculpture, and found-object art, it was his sound art that brought him national acclaim. In collaboration with Concordia University, this exhibition explores his extensive body of work, his long career, his influence as an educator, and his continuous fascination with the idea of creative thought.
