The exhibit, “Dry Times,” will feature the work of ceramic artist Jess Benjamin through May 18. Benjamin will appear at the exhibit’s First Friday reception on April 4, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Benjamin’s work focuses on water usage and drought throughout the Great Plains.
The appearance will coincide with a special event during the Great Plains Symposium, “Drought in the Life, Cultures and Landscapes of the Great Plains,” which will take place from April 1-4 at UNL. It’s hosted by the Center for Great Plains Studies.
