GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Friday evening at 7 p.m., Stuhr Museum is hosting the first “What do ya know?” event made up of five mini lectures on fairly non-traditional topics.

“This is a way to kind of broaden our base and talk about topics that aren’t normally talked about in academia,” Assistant Curator Robb Nelson said.

Stuhr went out into the community and selected five community leaders to give eight to ten minute presentations on an obscure topic that he or she is interested in. There will be a talk on ventriloquism, where the idea and voice for Stuhr’s mascot “Scout” came from and time travel.

People interested in joining the event to watch the talks can do so on the museum’s Facebook page by joining the Facebook live or through a YouTube link Stuhr will put out.

The event is an opportunity for Stuhr to widen its audience and combine history and education in a unique way. Throughout the pandemic the museum’s staff has been tirelessly working on finding new, creative ways to engage the community while museum attendance is down and in-person events aren’t happening.

The event is free however Stuhr will offer the option for a freewill donation.
