Erika Nelson To Emcee Pancake Day Talent Show
02/24/2011

Emceeing this year’s Pancake Day Talent Show Mar. 7 will be Kansas artist Erika Nelson, who promises to bring her quirky sense of fun to the evening. Nelson has spent the last few years making the world’s smallest versions of the world’s largest things. These miniature replicas of some of the country’s weirdest attractions are now housed in her traveling museum, which she bills as “The World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things.”
Nelson recently garnered national attention as a guest on Conan O’Brien’s talk show in December.
"Anyone who happened to catch Erika's appearance on The Conan Show knows that she is bright, witty and able to handle herself in front of an audience,” said Sally Fuller, Pancake Day Talent Show Chairman. “Although she is not a performer herself, Erika is passionate about the arts in all forms and will do a wonderful job of introducing the 25 talented acts the preliminary judges chose for the final competition."
Nelson also plans to attend all events on Pancake Day Mar. 8, and will driver her art car in the parade.
“She is very excited; she said coming to Pancake Day was on her Bucket List,” Fuller said.
Nelson, who lives in Lucas, Kans., describes herself as artist and educator who “explores a multitude of art forms including video, installation, and assemblages.” She earned her MFA from the University of Kansas, and her public art works include murals, Art Cars as public transportation, and bright graphic installations utilizing uncommon materials in a pictorial format.
The Talent Show is slated for 7:30 p.m., Monday, Mar. 7 at Liberal High School. Advance tickets are now on sale for $7 at the Tourist Information Center, 1 Yellow Brick Road. Tickets will be $10 at the door. For more information, call 620-624-6423.
