  6. Looking at these pictures it makes me stop and realize that the Nebraska Mondays series is more than a place to hear music each week.  It's also a canvas for musicians and sound artists to create their work.  It's a home for collaboration, improvisation, expression and artistic growth.  George's photos (shown here from 2010-2012) illustrate the lifelong dedication that the musicians give to their craft.  Thanks a ton to George Thomson for this great document of work.
