Humanities Nebraska speaker at the Custer County Museum this Sunday, October 16th

In conjunction with a quilt show currently on display at the Custer County Museum in Broken Bow, a special program will be held this Sunday, October 16th at 1:00 p.m.  Evelyn Haller Harris, Professor of English at Doane College, will present a Humanities Nebraska program, Willa Cather and Quilts. The program centers on Cather’s earliest memory of art, which was sitting under quilting frames as a child.  This early experience of art as craft, listening to stories and looking at arranged materials of everyday life, remained with Cather throughout her life and influenced her choices to work in places that recalled the small space under the quilting frame.  The program will feature slides that illustrate quilts Cather names in her fiction as well as related Cather sites and materials.  The presentation is sponsored by the Custer County Historical Society and is made possible by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.  The event is free and open to the public.  This weekend’s event is part of the “Follow the Rails Art Trail” and the museum will be open both Saturday and Sunday.
