Featured Partnership Program

ARTPOST & Military Family Day
Saturday, November 5, 10 am-2 pm
Artpost is a partnership between Joslyn Art Museum and New Century Art Guild, a non-profit organization that offers professional, recreational, and therapeutic services to veterans and their families through the medium of art. In June, professional artists and veterans were paired in the spirit of friendship and mentorship. Since then, matches have met to share personal narratives and to work together to create art for a culminating exhibition featuring drawings, paintings, photography, and sculpture. Come and see the results - and meet the artists! - at Military Family Day (click here for details). The Artpost exhibition will remain on view through December 31 in Joslyn's community gallery (lower level, Memorial building).

Outreach to Youth

Joslyn is partnering with NorthStar Foundation to provide visual arts instruction at its new facility. Twice per week, Museum staff presents after-school classes with curriculum based on art the boys will see during gallery visits.

An extension of the Kent Bellows Mentoring Program (KBMP), artists are mentoring groups at Boys Town National Research Hospital and at the Omaha Public Schools Teen Literacy Center to reach creative teens who are unable to visit Joslyn and Kent Bellows Studio.

Finding a Voice

Joslyn staff welcomes guests and residents of the Siena/Francis House for monthly programs at the Museum. Participants in the shelter's addiction recovery program gather for gallery viewing, art-making, writing, and reflection.

Art is sWELL

Once per month, Museum staff visits Nebraska Medicine to offer collection-related activities for pediatric patients and their families. This opportunity extends Joslyn's ongoing Passport Partners Program - benefiting students, faculty, and staff associated with the university and hospital - to now serve patients.
