Poseidon and the Sea:

“The showpiece (of the exhibit) is a large marble Roman copy of a Greek statue of Poseidon. It’s the first thing you see when you walk into the show,” said Erin Averett, Assistant Professor of Archaeology at Creighton University and Adjunct Curator of Antiquities at Joslyn Art Museum.

Dark Days in Dublin

Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre Company continues its mission of focusing on Irish culture in an earnest and respectable production of Sean O’Casey’s famed Juno and the Paycock.  Craig Lee’s excellently conceived set brings home the dreariness of life in these characters’ tenement. Filling the place with color, Joseph Miloni puts thoroughly dynamic character into “Joxer” Daly.

“Joxer” is hanger-on and buddy to...

‘Walk the Walk…’

Standing in the middle of Mitchell Squire's provocative exhibition at Carver Bank, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts' North Omaha satellite, one gets a sense of eerie foreboding in the close quarters surrounded by the over one hundred or so art supporters present at the January 11 opening.

Given the gallery's use of the phrase "gun violence" six times in the four-paragraph exhibition text, the show could...
