LINCOLN — Jonathan Fineberg, an art historian appointed last year as a University of Nebraska presidential professor, concludes his term today with a lecture in Omaha about how art shapes the brain.

NU President J.B. Milliken occasionally selects widely known scholars for the professorship, established to enhance the cultural and educational life of NU and Nebraska. Fineberg is a visiting presidential professor, as was artist Enrique Martinez Celaya, who served as visiting presidential professor from 2007 to 2010. Former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser was named a NU presidential professor in 2005.
