December 11 A Conversation with Pilot Doug Dean
Program begins at 2:00 PM in the special exhibition Dirt Meridian

Join Toby Jurovics, Joslyn's Chief Curator and Holland Curator of American Western Art, in the special exhibition Dirt Meridian for a conversation with prairie bush pilot, Doug Dean.

Participants to this program must obtain a ticket prior to entering the exhibition. Tickets are free for Joslyn members, Creighton University students, faculty and staff, and all other college students with ID.

PLEASE NOTE: The special exhibition galleries can accommodate up to 40 people for this gallery talk (more than 40 makes it difficult for the group to see and hear the talk). A second group will be formed as needed for a repeat of the talk at 2:30 pm. We appreciate your understanding.



Dean's experience and passion for flying and photography, combined with a chance meeting and resultant friendship with Andrew Moore, have culminated in the collaboration on view in Dirt Meridian.

Doug Dean grew up in the Nebraska Sandhills and was inspired from a young age by their natural beauty and remoteness. Dean has logged over 11,000 hours as a commercial pilot, flying in some of the most remote locations in the U.S. (occasionally accompanied by his border collie, Dan Tucker). While he has always considered photography a mere hobby, some of his work has still managed to find its way into magazines and television; most recently Pilot Magazine The New York Times, and CNN TV's "Inside Man."
