The second annual Power of Wind and Water Art Show will be April 23-28 at Kimmel Education and Research Center in Nebraska City. Original pieces of artwork on display during the show represent the various ways in which wind and water has been harnessed and used as energy.
Many different types of artwork will be exhibited including posters, paintings, photographs, illustrations, sculptures, graphic arts, textile arts, original stories, poems, and much more. The first ever Power of Wind and Water Art Show had over 225 entries from 18 different countries last spring.
Registration for the Power of Wind and Water Art Show is now open.
If you would like to submit an art entry, it will be accepted in person at the Kimmel Education and Research Center from April 19-21, or entries can be made anytime at the Kregel Windmill Factory Museum. Any art entries made on April 21 must be brought to the Kimmel Education and Research Center by 10 a.m. on that day.
