#visitkearney Picture yourself in Kearney

There is something fascinating about twins. They cause you to do a double-take, particularly if they are identical twins. These two boys were photographed by Lynn Dance in 1975 as a part of a project documenting Nebraska people, landscapes and architecture for the American Centennial celebration.

At first glance, this piece by John Dinsmore looks like a lovely tapestry, however the title of the work brings things more into view, as the blues run through the weaving like the gentle flow of the river, and the golds that fade to black like the sun setting on the horizon.
