Live from Lincoln

I'm in Nebraska for two weeks helping install Liz King's retrospective at the Sheldon Museum of Art in Lincoln. I'm staying in a small dorm room with Liz's assistant Sean. Allison, a student at RISD and a family friend of Liz's is up on the third floor. Liz is staying at the Holiday Inn a few blocks away.

So far so good. Without the students around Lincoln appears to be a sleepy town. Then again, this may be an unfair assessment as it's the weekend, we're in the states Capitol and a couple of days ago was a holiday.

The Sheldon was designed by Philip Johnson (and slightly resembles Lincoln Center) , the state Capitol building is the second tallest in the nation (after Louisiana's), and there are lots of catalpas and Chinese rain trees. Pretty good so far.
