Description : This story is an attempt to touch the pulse of todays boys and girls. They spend countless hours in front of their many different games. Preteens match their skills against the latest games and machines. They use gigabytes to compete in 3-D and virtual media. They attend public, private, parochial, and religious schools where they are required to be inside most of the day. They return home to their games and begin to play. Again they are inside, defeating their games in stride. It makes you wonder if they ever go outside. Children spend so much time inside. How can they feel alive? How do they get in touch with nature other side? Todays parents dont want their children out of reach. A ten-year-old boy walking through the woods would be a security breach. I wrote this story to get parents to think. I wrote this story for preteen boys and girls to virtually link.

Description : The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery houses one of the most highly regarded collections of twentieth-century American art anywhere, including paintings by Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, Robert Motherwell, Robert Henri, Grant Wood, Frank Stella, and many more internationally renowned artists. Calling the Sheldon collection "exemplary," the art historian and critic Barbara Rose notes: "Because the collection does not reflect fashion, the misguided inspiration of much art collecting today, but is rather an effort of connoisseurship, and informed by an art historical viewpoint, it is certain to remain as durable and exciting tomorrow as it is today." The American Painting Collection of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery offers for the first time a full description of the collection, now numbering more than one thousand works, that has been nearly a century in the making. The first part of the book presents full-color reproductions of 101 of the most noteworthy paintings in the collection, each accompanied by a brief discussion of the artist and his or her work. The second part, or catalog, consists of a complete inventory of the collection, including for each painting its physical description, provenance, exhibition history, and publication history, as well as a black and white reproduction. Publication of the book coincides with a year-long celebration of the centennial of the Nebraska Art Association, the Sheldon Gallery's support group and one of the oldest continuous arts organizations in the country.
