Lincoln’s ProjectRoom Gallery Final Show

*Lincoln’s ProjectRoom Gallery is opening its final show Friday, April 1. Drive Dark West, featuring work by Fortner McDowell, will close the gallery’s three years in downtown Lincoln’s Parrish Building. Thirty distressed photographs and 30 bullet-pierced text pieces create an environment that reflects on a variety of subjects: family, work, honor, sex, love, violence, destiny, death and “life's drive towards some kind of personal resolution.” The show opens as part of Lincoln’s First Friday event on Friday, April 1 from 7-10 p.m. *Pulitzer Prize winning photographs–including a handful of instantly recognizable images–will be on display at the Durham Museum beginning April 9. Capture The Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs features more than 150 winning photographs in black and white and color. Two photographs each year win the prize, and the show includes the first-ever winners from 1942. Highlights include Joe Rosenthal’s 1945 photograph of the American flag raising at Iwo Jima and Nat Fein’s photo of Babe Ruth at Yankee Stadium. *The Joslyn Art Museum’s latest Family Fun Day focuses on its exhibition The Glory of Ukraine. The free event, slated for Sunday, March 27 from 1-4 p.m., will include a performance of traditional Ukrainian and Eastern European dances by the Omaha International Folk Dancers, a demonstration of egg tempera painting and gold leaf gilding from artist Jan Tan Creti , and a viewing of traditional ritual rushnyk cloths from Olesia Repichowskyj’s personal collection. Art making activities will include jewelry making, rushnyky cloth making and a clay animal craft. *The Nebraska Arts Council is looking for artists to participate in the 2011-12 Governor’s Residence Exhibition Program.
