Plans for Coalition With Other Asso
The Nebraska Art Association will
give its annual exhibit in Lincoln in
tho latter part of April and the first
part of May. This association has
now joined with two others, namely,
the Kansas Art Association, at Kan
sas University, Lawrence, and the
University Club of Kansas City. Ex
hibitions will bo given in all three
of the cities during the months of
March, April and May.
Miss Cora Parker, formerly head of
the Art department in the University
of Nebraska, is to select the pictures,
and since she is well and favorably
known among- Now York and Boston
artists, It is assured that tho very best
of American talent will bo represent
ed. This will be made tho more cer
tain because each association is a
corporation, guaranteeing safe con
duct tp all property left under its care.
At the University of Nebraska It has
been the custom to give these exhi
bitions for the last fifteen years and
in the past some five or six hundred
have bought Beason tickets for the
event. With the proceeds is purchased
one. of the exhibited paintings, which
is placed in the art gallery.
The Nebraskan is in receipt of a
letter from Jack Clark who is now be
ing employed by the Mexican Govern
ment on river Improvement work. He
gives a very graphic description of the
country, and an alluring account of the
warm, pleasant climate there.
