Mixed media—July 14, 2011

“Possessions:  literary characters and the things they carried” is the theme for (downtown) Omaha lit fest’s 2011 literary-themed art exhibit October 14 at the Downtown Omaha Public Library.  The lit fest is seeking ideas from artists to interpret literary artifacts — like props, objects, fashions, foods, or jewelry of famous literary characters.  Examples might be Sherlock Holmes’ pipe, Willy Wonka’s golden...
