Stuhr Museum's annual celebration of the beauty of life along the Platte River returns with the 2020 Wings Over the Platte Art Exhibit and Sale. The show, located in the elegant Stuhr Building, runs Feb. 14 - April 5.

For more than 30 years, Wings Over the Platte has showcased local, regional and national art talent who have been inspired by the plethora of life along the Platte River. From sculpture to pain to photography to multimedia and everything in between, the endless beauty of Nebraska is on display as it is nowhere else. 

This year's featured artist is Deb Kubik, whose pieces incorporate colorful glass to create unique pieces. From her website: Fused glass lends itself to the perfect medium for me because it can be seen from so many directions. It captures the light, giving off beautiful shadows from the artwork. Using small granular pieces of glass, frit, to build the transparent quality of glass to give it depth. I love the qualities of glass and the challenge of using glass, it is very experimental. Glass gives me the challenge to create differing techniques.

Make plans to see Wings Over the Platte. Regular admission fees apply, which are $8 for adults, $6 for kids and FREE for Stuhr Museum members. For more information call (308) 385-5316.
