County museum hosts new exhibit

‘Dead or Alive’ features notable Nebraskans

‘Dead or Alive’ will be available to Dawson County Historical Museum patrons and others beginning Saturday, Oct. 12.

That’s when an inaugural exhibit featuring notable Nebraskans, dead or alive or famous or obscure, will be on display.

The exhibit opens Saturday and continues through Nov. 9.

To kick off the exhibit, a reception is planned at the museum Saturday, from 1-4 p.m., for the public. The address is 805 N. Taft St.

The exhibit will be available to the public in the museum art gallery during regular business hours until the exhibit closes.

From the art group Impact Nebraska, the exhibit is the start of a new “Museum Showcase” program series at the museum in Lexington.

Impact maintains a membership of about 30 Nebraskans who work in a broad range of disciplines, styles and directions.

From its inception, Impact has been recognized for its record of professionalism and creative expression.
