Jan. 23 Masters and Music Series w/ Hesse McGraw and Dustin Bushon UNO Gallery, 6001 Dodge St., 5 p.m., $15/FREE for UNO students, 554.2402 The latest installment of The University of Nebraska-Omaha’s Masters and Music series boasts two very special guests. Collaboration and Syncopation features Hesse McGraw, curator of The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, and musician Dustin Bushon. McGraw’s interest in socially engaged, cross-disciplinary art fosters collaboration as he develops exhibitions for the three main gallery spaces. His background in New York City as assistant director at The Max Protech Gallery and founding director of Paragraph in Kansas City makes him an ideal candidate to share his experiences. He discusses the transformative possibilities that contemporary arts holds for our shared public life, while Omaha native Bushon performs material recorded under his “Fathr^” moniker. Bushon’s ability to invoke loss, desperation, vulnerability and serenity through emotive sensation creates a unique performance that captivates his audience. Each performance adequately conveys the realism of growing up fatherless. A wine and appetizer reception with the artists follows.
