Collection Connection: Bob Ferguson
June 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
More than 100 stamps issued from 1898 to 2017 provide a diverse retrospective of American paintings on U.S. stamps. In this visual presentation, the stamps are organized chronologically by schools of art, and the enlarged images show each artist’s skill. The influence of art on stamp design and production over the years is also highlighted. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, POST MIDWAY: Stamps and Mail Artifacts by Chuck Welch.
A stamp collector for many years, Bob Ferguson has a B.A. degree in History and an M.A. in Education from the University of Rochester, New York. He was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Colombia, taught high school social studies, and recently retired as Program Assistant for Humanities Nebraska.
Humanities Nebraska provides major funding for this program. HN receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Nebraska State Legislature, Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and private donations.
