Visiting Artist Betsy Schneider to lecture Oct. 30

Lincoln, Neb.--Betsy Schneider, a photo-based artist and educator, will present a free public lecture on Thursday, Oct. 30 at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 14. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Schneider's artistic concerns range from trying to understand time, decay and the body, to exploring childhood, culture, and relationships and looking very closely at strange visceral things such as candy, placentas and the mouth. She uses a variety of photographic tools including APS, digital, medium format and view cameras and digital and computer generated video.

Daily's composition a finalist for Van Galen Composition Prize

The composition “Brass Quintet" by Glenn Korff School of Music Lecturer Nels Drue Daily will be performed by the River Falls Brass on Oct. 26.

His composition is one of only 10 pieces chosen as Finalists out of 77 submissions from composers from eight countries for the Van Galen Composition Prize.
