UNO Professor to Present Photography Exhibit
Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Professor Christine Reed will present a collection of horse photographs at an exhibit on Wednesday, Aug. 12. The exhibit is entitled "Still Wild: Portraits From the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range." Reed is the Regents Foundation Professor of Public Administration.
The exhibition runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Omaha Healing Arts Center Gallery, 1216 Howard St. Reed’s exhibit will be part of the Old Market Gallery Crawl, and her photographs will be on display through early September.
"I call this collection of portraits 'Still Wild' because it reflects the stillness and contained energy of wild horses," Reed said. "The other meaning of the title is the sense of a lull before the storm. A number of horses will soon be removed from the range in order to implement the federal government's policy of preventing overpopulation on the range."
The photographs were taken during Reed's four-day trip in June to the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range in Montana, where more than 120 horses roam free on the range. The range is located on the south slope of East Pryor Mountain overlooking the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming.
Reed has been a faculty member at UNO since 1982. As a Regents Foundation professor in the School of Public Administration, Reed's main teaching and research interests are administrative law and environmental policy and ethics. A special focus of Reed’s research is on the public management of wild horses. Reed has also served as chair of the doctoral program committee.

UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
