Kearney Public Library and UNK-History Department welcome you to the history brown bag lunch series Wednesday, January 5 from noon-1:00 p.m. April White will present “Intentional Excess: the Frank Mansion’s Deliberate Design as a Path to Prosperity.”
Built in 1889, the Gilded Age mansion that currently houses the G.W. Frank Museum of History and Culture is an extraordinary tribute to strategic architectural design. Opulent details throughout the house did not just reflect the Frank family’s wealth and success. Design details were deliberately chosen and literally helped the Franks build a business empire. Frank Museum Director April White will discuss how the Frank Museum’s deliberate design choices cleverly added to the Frank’s success in the Kearney area.
April White has a Master of Arts in American History, a Bachelor of Arts in Art History, and has worked extensively at museums in the Kearney area. April currently serves as Director of the G.W. Frank Museum of History and Culture, and adjuncts part time in the UNK History Department.
Mark your calendars for this ongoing series on February 2 with a presentation by Dr. Carol Lilly from the University of Nebraska – Kearney History Department.
This program is free and open to the public so bring your lunch and learn! This collaborative program is presented by UNK-History Department, and the Kearney Public Library.
