Purpose of the Organization Univer
sity In Circuit Great Paint
ings in the Collection.
The annual exhibition of tho Nebras
ka Art Association, held hitherto In
January, opens tonight In tho Art Hall
of tho Library building and will re
main open for thre'e weeks. The alms
of the association and the excellent
character of the exhibitions are well
known to the older students of tho
University; those who are hero for
the first time this year, have yet to
make trie acquaintance of one of the
most Important of tho younger insti
tutions of Nebraska.
The association came Into existence
some twenty years ago. It was con
ceived by a littlo group of enthusi
astic people who realized what art
may mean for lite and how great a
misfortune It Is that tho young people
of t Nebraska, and especially tho hun
dreds of University students from all
parts of the state, who hardly know
what a really good painting looks llko,
should not have sbmo opportunity to
begin their art education by making
the acquaintance of tho best work of
distinguished American artists. This,
tho founders believed, could be done
In two ways; first, by bringing here
each year and placing on exhibition,
a choice collection of paintings; sec
ond, by forming a permanent collec
tion that soma day might be placed
In a beautiful art building and bo
opened to the public. In tho face of
great difficulties, tho association lias
struggled on; holding Its annual exhi
bition and ridding oach year one or
two good pictures to its collection.
This year a circuit has been formed
with Kansas City and the University
of Kansas and the pictures .now on ex
hibition hero have already been ex
hibited' there.
Tho work of the' association should
appeal strongly to tho students of tho
University both for the personal" ben
efit that can bo derived from the
study of tho pictures and for tho good
that can be done by tho establishment
of a permanent art gallery. Tho as
sociation cannpt continue Its work
successfully unless It receives more
hearty support than it has recolyod in
the pfTst. Last year, less than two
hundred and fifty students, out of the
three thousand registered, entered the
rArt Hall during the exhibition. Tho
. season tickets have been placed very
low (fifty cents for students) and It
ought to be possible to sell this year
double the number sold last yea'r. The
actual expenses of handling tho pic
tures has always been largo and has
oaten up all but .three or four hundred
dollars, about the, price of, a small
picture. An additional two hundred
and fifty tickets taken by the Uni-
vorsity students would mean one hun
dred and-twenty-five dollars more, or
half the price of a picture. The num
ber of tickets sold should be nearer
one thousand than flVe, hundred. At
