BIO:
Friedman’s work is concerned with the residue of humanity—from God to garbage and how American cultural identity is constructed around signifiers with no inherent significance beyond what is ascribed to them.
 
Through sculpture, performance, photography, drawing, and video, he tackles how we internalize and filter the world through magical thinking, institutionalized religion, and consumer culture-primarily through the lens of humor.
 
Friedman has exhibited at numerous institutions including Crystal Bridges Museum of American, PS1/MoMA, Everson Museum of Art, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. A Pollock-Krasner recipient, he received his MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Residencies include Skowhegan, MacDowell Colony, Fountainhead and Bemis Center. Publications include: New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Miami Herald. Collections include: Walker Art Center, Brooklyn Museum.
 
Friedman runs, Fiendish Plots, in Lincoln NE, with his wife, artist Nancy Friedemann-Sanchez.

BIO

As a high schooler, Nancy was bitten by the theatre bug when, from the last row of the highest balcony, she saw A Chorus Line on Broadway. She is thrilled to move from the audience to backstage with her first play, This Mortal Life Also, produced by the Angels Theatre Company and part of the 2021-22 Lied Center for Performing Arts season. This Mortal Life Also tells the story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the 20th century’s most renowned theologians, who opposed National Socialism and became in the plot to assassinate Hitler. Nancy’s work explores personal integrity and the search for meaning during times of societal upheaval. The production will receive the Mayor’s Arts Award for Outstanding Arts Event this month.

Nancy’s presentation to Lincoln South Rotary will take members on the journey from idea to production of her play.

Nancy is co-host of the Front Porch Book Club podcast (https://frontporchbookclub.com) and is at work on a contemporary novel based in the United States that explores notions of community. She is also working on another play.

Nancy retired as Associate Director of the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center where she supported the public policy aims of national, state, and local organizations. She earned a PhD in Human Sciences and an MBA from the University of Nebraska (Lincoln, NE), and a Bachelor’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania (Bloomsburg, PA).

Nancy is a member of: Dramatists Guild (New York, NY), New Play Exchange, Playwrights’ Center (Minneapolis, MN), and Playwrights Collective (Lincoln, NE).

BIO:

Dr. James Blake held multiple roles in science education over his 14 year career, ranging from 7-12 science teacher, state science supervisor, to his current position as K-12 Science Curriculum Specialist in Lincoln Public Schools.  You can read more about his work at the LPS Science Website https://home.lps.org/science/.

Dr. Blake believes, “There is a consensus that for students to succeed in the future, whether that is postsecondary education or careers, they will need a strong background in science.  Science fairs are a great way for students to cement their personal commitment to science.  I work to support the district Science Fair because I believe that these opportunities give students a taste of authentic science, which will lead to more active interest in furthering their education in STEM.”
