Joslyn Around Town

While Joslyn Art Museum is temporarily closed for expansion and renovation, we look forward to making art and community connections at sites around town.

Art Camps

Young artists can immerse themselves in Drawing, Painting, and Mixed Media camps for ages 6–12 at Joslyn’s Kent Bellows Studio (3303 Leavenworth St.), a one-of-a-kind setting that is home to the Museum’s teen mentoring program. Joslyn Members: $85 per camp; General Public: $100 per camp. Summer 2022 Art Camps are sold out.

Festival Fun

Look for Joslyn’s booth at the following community celebrations. There may be a give-away, or an art-making activity, and our staff will always be eager to share updates on the Museum’s expansion project and upcoming Joslyn Around Town programs.

June 11 Omaha Summer Arts Festival @ Aksarben Village
June 18 World Refugee Day @ Levi Carter Park
July 16 Heartland Pride @ CHI Health Center
July 29–30 Maha Festival @ Stinson Park

Art JAM in the Park

Every Thursday, July 7–August 25, 10 am–noon
Guided by professional artist-instructors, and inspired by works in Joslyn Art Museum’s collections and the beautiful outdoor setting, families will enjoy learning simple art concepts and techniques while exploring their own creativity using a variety of media. Join us for Art JAM in the Park, under the canopies at Gene Leahy Mall at The RiverFront (near 13th and Farnam St.). Free drop-in event. All ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.

Looking Ahead

Fall will bring studio art classes for all ages at Kent Bellows Studio; retooled popular programs like Visualizing Literature, Story Adventures, and Art Adventures at Omaha Public Library branches; the continuation of Symphony Joslyn, including pre-concert art talks, at UNO’s Strauss Performing Arts Center; artist conversations at The Ashton at Millwork Commons; and curator art talks paired with poetry performances by Nebraska Writers Collective at Joslyn Castle. Details for these and other programs coming later this summer.
