Unveiling of Seward County Legacy Painting

We participated in the unveiling of Seward County's official painting for the Legacy of Nebraska Collection which is being done as a part of the State's Sesquicentennial celebration in 2017. Virginia Fraser and family have sponsored the painting of the Seward Country Courthouse by Nebraska Artist Todd Williams as a Rev. T. J. Fraser memorial. The Legacy project has been underway for some time and involves the Artist doing paintings representing each of the State's 93 Counties. Plans are for all 93 paintings to be displayed as a collection at Art Galleries in  Omaha, Lincoln and Grand Island during the Sesquicentennial year.  A book containing pictures of all 93 paintings will be published. 
 The Seward County picture will eventually be returned to our Memorial Library for permanent display and Memorial . It was a great program which included Clark Kolterman as MC, Mayor Josh Eickmeier, County Commissioner Roger Glawatz, Library Director Becky Baker, and the Artist-Todd Williams. It also included comments from Virginia and the unveiling by family members. The event was filmed by the Nebraska NET station and refreshments were provided by Friends of Seward Library.
