For three days an art class at Hastings College set out on an unusual field trip. Instead of driving or biking, thirteen students and their art professor pulled their own wagon and supplies down county roads from Hastings to Kearney.
The class calls themselves the "Prairie Art Pioneers".
The purpose of their adventure was to rediscover the beauty of Central Nebraskan landscape by collecting artifacts and photographs.
After enduring a cold and painful experience News 5 caught up with the group as they arrived in Kearney.
"Everything from a deer skull, we found a dead coyote, a lot Busch Lite beer cans and a Halloween jack o lantern," said Art Professor Steve Snell.
"I feel so accomplished. I never thought I could do anything like this."
"It was pretty challenging. At the end of each day everybody was just so exhausted, but today we were so excited to get here, we were a couple hours ahead of schedule," said Carolyn Clements.
The class took their findings to the Museum of Nebraska Art, there they will reflect on their experience and those pioneers from the past.
