George Flippin's Legacy

On Sept. 16, UNL honored George Flippin's legacy with the unveiling of a new art project bearing his likeness at the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center. The four-by-six-foot mural-style portrait of Flippin in his Nebraska football uniform —- a white sweater emblazoned with a red "N" -— is the culmination of the work of a dozen student volunteers.

The project provided an opportunity to transcend cultural boundaries through art by enlisting the talents of the volunteers from Prof. Aaron Holz’s advanced painting class in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts.
