footnote from the road: Iké Udé portrait of the Duncans

As I was driving across Illinois after being in Saint Louis, the NPR station was broadcasting a story about Nebraska collectors Robert and Karen Duncan who commissioned an official portrait from Nigerian-born artist Iké Udé who now lives in New York City. The collectors live in Lincoln and they quoted the director of the Sheldon Museum of Art which I had happily visited on my way across Nebraska.
