The Ross: Bio

The Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center, a comprehensive exhibition program which acknowledges the moving image as the principal art form of this century, is committed to screening a wide diversity of high quality film and video: innovative American independent work including non-narrative, experimental films and video; classic foreign and American cinema illustrative of traditional and historical perspectives; documentaries which examine a wide variety of issues of concern; and contemporary foreign cinema of substance. The program is augmented by the invited participation of important film artists and scholars, and is supplemented through the distribution of film notes and a research library which serves as a resource for the academic community and interested citizens throughout the state. The program plays a vital role in the education of the University's Academic community at large, including Film Studies students. It also reaches out to the Lincoln community and beyond, offering Nebraskans a stimulating alternative to commercial film and television fare by presenting works not ordinarily offered in this area.

    Special Thanks

    In 2009 the Lincoln Arts Council received a generous gift from the estate of Ken Good, a portion of which was used to redevelop our website and establish an endowment. We offer our heart-felt thanks to Kenneth J. Good for his generosity and vision for a beautiful future.
