6/21/2015 - 10/11/2015
The submission period for Art Seen is now closed. Please see below for the complete timeline.

In 2015, Joslyn Art Museum will present Art Seen: A Juried Exhibition of Artists from Omaha to Lincoln.

This exhibition will showcase artists living and working in our region today. Nebraska’s two largest cities are home to vibrant and expansive artistic communities, spurred forward by an engaged and enthusiastic audience. Artists will be selected by a jury led by Karin Campbell, Joslyn Art Museum’s Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art, and Bill Arning, Director of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.

Art Seen will investigate a range of contemporary practices to include painting, sculpture, photography, textiles, and installation art, illuminating the most important creative impulses and approaches in the region. Addressing diverse themes — including personal narrative, the social landscape, and environmental issues, as well as the exploration of nontraditional materials and new approaches to painting — the exhibition will reflect the lives and concerns of our communities. Art Seen will consist of both existing artwork and new projects commissioned for the installation.
