April 28 The Science Behind the Scenes
a special program in partnership with Lauritzen Gardens
1-3 PM

Inspired by Jennifer Steinkamp’s technical and systematic manipulation of nature, this program-partnership with Lauritzen Gardens offers a unique connection between our two institutions.

Beginning at 1 pm at Joslyn Art Museum, participants will enjoy an introduction to the exhibition Madame Curie with Karin Cambell, Joslyn's Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art. Following the gallery talk, participants will travel via shuttle bus to Lauritzen Gardens where they will receive a special behind-the-scenes tour of production greenhouses where expert horticulturalists research, study, propagate and grow many of the plants that end up on public display in the Gardens, including the dramatic presentation of tulips promising peak performance at the end of April. Garden educators will discuss how such plantings are conceived, designed, and executed before participants head back to Joslyn Art Museum. Mark your calendars for April 28 and check the next issue of Joslyn NOW for further details!

Space is limited and advanced reservations are required one week prior to the event. Tickets: $25 Joslyn and Lauritzen Garden Members; $35 for general public. Contact Joslyn’s Director of Adult Programs at sseverson@joslyn.org or (402) 661-3862, or register online here.
