Michelle Lytle to entertain at museum PDF Print E-mail

This Sunday the Chase County Museum will host Michelle Lytle and her daughter for a very entertaining afternoon. Museum visitors have been amazed by Michelle’s “feather painting” and “doll show.” This Sunday Michelle will demonstrate “bone art” and her daughter, Tenielle, will entertain with gospel music.
For the past 20 years, Lytle of McCook, has been selling her unusual artwork. Her ink drawings of wildlife, Indians, and the world around us are drawn on bones.  The cattle bones and other animal bones are gathered from pastures and bleached by the Nebraska sun.  
Scrubbed and sanded, each takes on a personality of its own, even before the scene is drawn on. An occasional crack often adds to the final product. Permanent ink is used to draw the scenes and portraits. Pictures and photos of actual Indians, prospectors and animals are used to ensure authenticity.
Tenielle Lytle is 19 years old. She just finished her first year in Music Ministries at Nebraska Christian College in Papillion. She has always loved music and along with singing, Tenielle plays the piano and guitar. She also has a love for missions and a love for the people of Mexico.  She is leaving in a few weeks for a three month mission trip.
The program will begin at 2 p.m. The Museum hours are 1:30 to 4:30 Sunday.
