Nebraska 'Archway' Includes Mormon Exhibit
(Archway shaping up for opening)
KHAS TV5 Hastings NE 13Mar00 N6

HASTINGS, NEBRASKA -- Artists and promoters are working to finish the Nebraska 'Archway' to commemorate the pioneer trails that passed through Nebraska opening the west. One of the exhibits in the Archway is the "Mormon" Exhibit, meant to portray the Mormon pioneers who passed through Nebraska starting in 1847.

The Mormon exhibit includes a train of covered wagons, moving into a mural, where they are depicted moving over a mountain on their way west. The mural is being painted by muralist Paul Baker, who has painted several murals in the Archway, including one of Yellowstone park. Each of the murals in the Archway takes from five to eight days to complete.
