History Museum Celebrates Nebraska’s Sesquicentennial


For the next three months, all 93 of Nebraska’s counties will find themselves together in one space.

In celebration of 150 years of Nebraska’s statehood, the Nebraska History Museum will display over 120 paintings in an exhibition titled “The Legacy of Nebraska.” The paintings, done by Nebraskan artist Todd Williams, will represent each of Nebraska’s counties.

The works vary in size and subject; from the state capitol building to portraits of Native American chiefs.

Williams, a native of Central City, used various methods and inspirations to complete the paintings.
