H. Don and Connie J. Osborne Family Gallery – The H. Don and Connie J. Osborne Family Gallery will host the exhibit “Mapping Nebraska: From Nations to Statehood” from Nov. 18 – Dec. 19. This exhibit uses maps to illustrate the numerous political, cultural, and technological shifts that occurred in the Nebraska region during the 18th and 19th centuries. The maps offer a visual exploration of the varied histories, providing a snapshot of the impact these changes had on Native Nations, European settlers, and the natural landscape.
There will be a companion lecture given by Omaha native and map collector Micah Evans on Dec. 4 at 6 p.m.
The exhibit is curated by Claire Du Laney, Outreach Archivist for Archives and Special Collections, with maps on loan from Micah Evans.
