February 24 - 25 Free College Weekend
10 am–4 pm

During regular public hours (10 am to 4 pm) on Saturday and Sunday, February 24 and 25, anyone with a valid college ID will receive free tickets to Word/Play.

The first major exhibition featuring Ed Ruscha in his home state of Nebraska, Word/Play brings together prints, photographs, and artist books dating from the 1960s through 2014, complemented by a selection of major paintings. An important early figure in Conceptual Art, Ruscha deftly combines imagery and text. At turns poignant, provocative, and confounding, Ruscha’s use of the written word is a signature element of his work.



Word/Play is a ticketed exhibition: General public adults: $10; (Thursday evening pricing, 4-8 pm: $5 for general public adults); $5 for college students with a valid ID (tickets for those with a UNMC student ID are free); Youth ages 17 and younger: Free; Joslyn Members: Free
