Positioned between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the first-ever Museum Store Sunday promises relaxing, inspired experiences and gives people a chance to give back to the community through support of local, non-profit musueums.

The Museum is a rejuvenating, unique place to bring the entire family over the holiday weekend. On November 26, general public adults and college students with valid ID will enjoy $1 off tickets to the exhibition Marks of Genius: 100 Extraordinary Drawings from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. (Tickets regularly priced at $10 for general public adults and $5 for college students with valid ID; Joslyn members and youth ages 17 and younger receive free tickets; general admission to the Museum’s permanent collection is always free).

A curated retail space, the Museum Shop features items inspired by Joslyn’s building, history, and varied art collections alongside the work of jewelers, potters, glassmakers, printmakers, woodworkers, and fiber/fabric artists. Presently, the Museum Shop features work by 33 distinct artists, all but five of whom are from Nebraska or Iowa. An official distributor and exclusive local source for merchandise from artisan workshops, Joslyn’s Hitchcock Museum Shop showcases one-of-a-kind items from The Chihuly Workshop and Glass Eye Studio (both Washington), Lundberg Studios Art Glass (California), and Ephraim Pottery (Wisconsin). The Shop also features plenty of items celebrating Joslyn’s building, collections, and programs — from mugs, magnets, and Chihuly-inspired puzzles, to books, art socks, and notecards (including the latest folios showcasing the newly reinstalled European collection). Many of the art-focused books, toys, and games featured in Joslyn’s hands-on space ART WORKS: A Place for Curiosity are for sale in the Shop, as are exhibition-related books and merchandise in a constantly-rotating selection. Additionally, every fall, the Shop brings in new home décor items exclusively for the holidays.
