<p>Neil Greiss, “Untilted” </p> Win! Place! Show!

Ask any gallery director, private or public, what “job one” is and they are likely to tell you it’s organizing exhibitions that meet their mission and satisfy the needs of their artists and patrons.

OCP, Witching Hour and John Beasley Theater news

Prince takes hold of the b-word at UNO

Photographer Teresa Prince will show her series of “bitch” photos this week at the UNO Milo Bail Student Center. The project, called “Bitch: It’s Our Word Now,” features a series of images of women holding signs that claim the word as their own and define it in ways personal to them. Prince began the project because she wanted to take the word – oft used negatively to describe people who don’t stick to...
