A Prairie Evening With The Arts

July 22, 2024 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The public is invited to attend a free “Prairie Evening With The Arts” Monday, July 22 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Kathleen Lute Public Library.

“Dust Devil,” the library’s new bronze sculpture honoring Frank and Anne Svoboda, will be dedicated. The Svobodas were longtime supporters of the library and the arts in Ogallala. “Dust Devil” was created by nationally recognized sculpture artist Les Bruning of Omaha and depicts native prairie animals as cutouts in the swirling layers of the whirlwind.

Nebraska State Poet emeritus Twyla Hansen will give a reading of her work at the event.  Live music will be provided by String Fling, and there will be an art display inside the library featuring prairie works by regional artist Jean Jensen. Hors d’oeuvres and mocktails will be served.
