We have begun again to post on our museum's Facebook page as we move into the next chapter of our storied history with the hiring of a new executive director, Peter Osborne last week. Peter has had a long career in public history and is the author of fifteen books including two on the state parks where General George Washington crossed the Delaware River in 1776. Here he is in front of of two reproduction Durham boats that were used to cross the river at The Crossing as it is known to historians. Peter was also the author of a biography of Elizabeth Grandin, one of Robert Henr's most famous students. While we will forgive him for being an Easterner, he now hails from Red Cloud, Nebraska, home to Willa Cather, one of our state's most famous authors. He came to the Midwest because of his long love of Cather's work.

More to come as we continue to tell the story of Robert Henri, one of America's most famous artists and who has a Nebraska chapter in his life's history.
