Here is another great Lundeen bronze sculpture, called "Field of Blue". It was presented by George Lundeen to the city of Holdrege in the summer of 2011. It is located on the southwest corner of the courthouse block.
This piece was done by George Lundeen, formerly of Holdrege and now in Loveland, Colorado. Along with several other talented family members, they comprise what is arguably one of the finest bronze sculpture centers in the United States.
(On my Springfield, Illinois page, you can see his wonderful Abraham Lincoln sculpture. Another Lundeen is on my Denver,Colorado page and my Wichita, Kansas page.)

The Nebraska Prairie Museum has a large indoor area as well as the outdoor areas partly shown by the photograph. It is an excellent local museum. This museum has the largest display anywhere on the subject of the World War II Atlanta, Nebraska Prisoner of War Camp which was located a few miles southwest of Holdrege. The camp was constructed in 1943 and employed some 600 military and 130 civilian personnel. It housed 3000 German POW's, many of whom volunteered to help local farmers with their crops. The camp was phased out in 1946.

Holdrege has a very nice park in the northwest part of town. It features a Bronze sculpture called "Promise of the Prairie" by noted sculptor George Lundeen, who grew up in this area. He presented this work of art to the people of Holdrege in 1983. The sculpture shows a pioneer family such as those who came through Nebraska on the Oregon Trail. The park also has a nice lake.
The second attached photo shows a smaller replica of the statue in a private home. This photo enables you to see better detail.
The remaining photos show North Park on a frosty January day.
