LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A fairly cold weekend is shaping up, and if you’re looking for something warm to enjoy indoors, the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau has you covered with Friday Fast Facts.

Good Rubbish: An Art Walk

Good Rubbish is an art walk in the truest sense. This year, people have found themselves outside because of the pandemic, walking to escape the confines of work, from home or to socialize with friends in a safe manner. What is found while walking, what it means and what it makes one imagine is a key inspiration for the show and for many of the works of art, a few of which are composed solely of rubbish: discarded materials or litter.

Friday 6 p.m.; Free
