Power of Wind Art Show


The Power of Wind Art Show is our first big event this year, which runs from April 24th through April 29th. The museum is co-sponsoring this event with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Kimmel Education & Research Center here in Nebraska City. The original pieces of artwork on display during the show represent the various ways in which the wind has been harnessed and used as energy. Many different types of artwork will be exhibited demonstrating wind power in its various aspects. These types of art include posters, paintings, photographs, illustrations, sculptures, original stories, poems, and much more. We have had a significant amount of registrants for the show so far, both from teachers that have signed their classes up and from individual professional artists that would like to showcase their work. We have registered over 400 students for the show from all over Southeast Nebraska, including Omaha, Peru, and Nebraska City. Individual artists have registered for the event, some already sending in their pieces, from all over the globe. We currently have registered artists from Thailand, India, Ukraine, Netherlands, and Belgium!

Registration for the Power of Wind Art Show is still open and we have new artists joining in every day. If you would like to submit a piece of art for the exhibit entries are being accepted in person at the Kimmel Education & Research Center or the Kregel Windmill Factory Museum from April 20th through April 22nd. Online submissions or questions can be sent to the Executive Director of the KWFM at david@kregelmuseum.org or by filling out the appropriate form below.

Along with the award medals, winning artists will also be given various prizes provided Pizza Hut, Raising Cane's, Dairy Sweet, Sonic Drive-In, and Boulder Creek Amusement Park. Judging for the exhibit will be conducted by volunteers from various institutions including Kimmel-Harding-Nelson Center for the Arts and the Nebraska Arts Council.
