The Spring 2018 Graves Lecture Series will continue April 10 at 7 p.m. in the Sandoz Center Atrium with Mary Donahue. All presentations begin at 7 p.m. in the Sandoz Center Atrium and are free and open to the public.

Donahue is a professor of Art in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts. As a teacher and practitioner of art and graphic design, she is interested in the human story and how it is portrayed. Late last summer, Donahue was selected to be an extra in one episode of the Coen Brothers’ first TV/Netflix series, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” filmed near Scottsbluff, Nebraska.

During her time as an extra, she was able to observe firsthand the process of professional movie making and the human story behind the production. The title of her presentation is “On the Trail of the Oscar-Winning Filmmakers, the Coen Brothers…in the Nebraska Panhandle.” The episode is set to air later this year.
