Back in 1969, Campus Life started in Lincoln. This organization makes a positive difference in the lives of students.  To celebrate their fifty year milestone in 2019, “Serving Hands” public art sculptures were displayed all around Lincoln. Normally I try to go around town and share the sculptures. Due to writing a book, those posts were not possible.

But during the last week, they set up all of the sculptures down at Pinnacle Bank Arena. In between appointments, my daughter and I went down and were able to see almost all of the sculptures.  Even though these hands will no longer be seen around town, I do think that they are still worth telling about.

Pictures are (mostly) identified from left to right, then from top to bottom.
