Auburn Students’ Calvert-Sheridan Day Banner Goes On Display

AUBURN – Auburn Art Teacher Pam Pfeiffer presented the Calvert-Sheridan Day banner at Monday’s city council meeting.

Pfeiffer said the banner, which required after school hours from art club students to complete in six months, is an accomplishment for the student artists.

Pfeiffer: “They found what made sense to them to bring together the community that they know of in Nebraska, particularly southeast Nebraska.”

The banner began with a sketch of the Nemaha County Courthouse by Trinity Angle and a drawing of the sower on the state Capitol was added. Students included the Peru schoolhouse, Brownville Village Theater and farm fields.

Pfeiffer said it will be a part of Auburn’s art heritage.

Pfeiffer: “My students are learning that they can impact their community and be a part of it and have something left here afterwards to come back and see they are still there, part of it.”

The banner will be at Brownville’s Old Time Autumn Days this weekend and will return to city hall.
