Joslyn Art Museum is delighted to share updates from its curatorial department. 
Faces from the Interior: The North American Portraits of Karl Bodmer features over sixty recently conserved watercolors, drawn entirely from Joslyn’s renowned Maximilian-Bodmer collection. This includes portraits of individuals from the Omaha, Ponca, Yankton, Lakota, Mandan, Hidatsa, Assiniboine, and Blackfoot nations, among the many encountered by the travelers. Indigenous knowledge bearers, artists, and scholars from the nations that Bodmer and Maximilian visited have contributed texts and four short films for this exhibition that highlight the diverse histories, beliefs, and practices embodied in the portraits.
