What, you didn't hear? Benson, Neb., was struck with an outbreak of zombies last Friday. Oddly enough, the living dead were scheduled to walk down Maple Street, but reasonably enough, they were slow to start.
The night marked Benson First Friday's fifth month of art, music and generally weird and fun activities like the rodent resurrection at Sweatshop. Artists such as Emily Jordan, Ramanda Fuelberth, BFF organizer Alex Jochim, Shannon Carroll, Bart Vargas and Jennifer Lassley displayed their work, among many others. Music included Luke Polipnick's A Dozen Suns project, and DJ Kobrakyle as well as Maya Taylor Dance gave street performances.
But what makes for a better photo than a little fake blood and a snarl? Let's start with the zombies, and stay tuned for next month's schedule by following BFF on Facebook:
