they're at the door opens april 7

6:00 to 9:00pm
opening reception
When Sean Jackson saw one of the Trump campaign's ads last fall, it left him speechless:

A woman who's asleep in her bedroom is jolted awake by the sound of breaking glass. She runs to the phone, and as she calls 911, she unlocks a gun case on her dresser and reaches for a loaded pistol inside. Then several things happen simultaneously. The gun she is reaching for disappears, and the accompanying voiceover tells those watching that Hillary Clinton could take away their rights to self defense. The ad then cuts to the front of the woman's home wrapped in crime tape with the message "Don't let Hillary leave you defenseless" on screen.

"As a husband, father and one of the many Americans who do not own guns, I found myself looking around my living room and thinking, 'I don't think I'm defenseless just because I don't own a gun,'" Jackson said.

He will test his theory at the little gallery, which will be set up as a typical living room. When Jackson arrives at the gallery, he'll take stock of his surroundings and create ways to protect his family from the objects at his disposal. This process will be videotaped, and the creations he makes will be available for sale.

During the reception, people will be able to talk to the artist, walk through the aftermath of his creative process and watch the video of him at work.

"They're at The Door" runs through April 29. Want to learn more about the artist? Read our 5 with Sean Jackson here. Questions about the show? Give us a shout at 402.681.1901.
buff is back, but better

A few weeks ago, someone plucked BUFF – our Benson Underground Film Forum mascot – from the planter outside the little gallery at 5901 Maple in beautiful downtown Benson. Then our new friend Josh Kaufman (pictured above) from Benson Machine Works got involved and renewed our faith in human nature. Read the full story here - it'll make you feel good all over!
