Upcoming Exhibitions
Joslyn Art Museum hosts a selection of temporary special exhibitions annually. These feature works from other museums, institutions, and private collections worldwide, or represent an aspect of Joslyn's own permanent collection. Special exhibitions are limited-time engagements and are most often free with regular Museum admission (exhibitions with an additional entrance fee are noted).
