Opening on Monday, October 28 at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is Impact Kooser
, an exhibition of works by artists from every corner of Nebraska inspired by the poems of United States Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser.

All works will be displayed with the Kooser poem on which they are based.
A reception will be held on Saturday, December 7 from 3 – 5 p.m. in conjunction with Nebraska City’s newest annual tradition, Yule Fest. The reception and exhibition are free, handicap accessible, and open to the public. All ages are welcome. The exhibition closes Thursday, December 19, 2013.
