The Nic Opens Two New Exhibits [AUDIO]

Nebraska artist Jamie Burmeister’s works are not the kind you just look at from a distance.

No, most of Burmeister’s art only comes alive when viewers interact with it , today, Burmeister’s newest exhibition, “Shooting Gallery,” opens at the Nicolaysen Art Museum and continues through Aug. 7. It is one of two new exhibitions the museum will present that day, with the other being “Living History” – a group exhibition that examines how history is revisited, relived, re-imagined, and restaged by artists, compulsive re-enactors, and fixated history buffs.

To celebrate the opening of “Shooting Gallery” and “Living History,” the NIC will host a free, public reception May 20. From 5-6 p.m. there will be a “members only” preview of the exhibition featuring artists’ talks.The free opening reception for the general public begins at 6 p.m. and will feature hors d’oeuvres by Plated Catering and a cash bar.

Executive Director of the Nic, Connie Gibbons , talks with us about the exhibit and her first 5 months with the Nic.
