Annual Fund - Connecting Our Community To Art

 For nearly a century, the Museum has played an important role in our community – providing the public, at all ages, the opportunity to interact and connect with art and each other.

The Museum first opened its doors to the public on November 29, 1931 – a generous gift to the people of Omaha from Sarah H. Joslyn in memory of her husband, George A. Joslyn. During the opening day festivities, Sarah quietly slipped into the crowd of 25,000 who lined up to see the magnificent new building. “I am just one of the public,” she remarked to those who recognized her, adding that the Museum was her gift to the people of Omaha and that it was up to them to determine what to do with it. “If there is any good in it, let it go on and on.”

While Joslyn may look different than it did 90 years ago, you as a visitor, member, and supporter of the Museum have always been the focus of our mission and work. This is your Museum to visit, explore, and share.

Your generous support has allowed us to be where we are today - a highly regarded institution and the only art museum of such scale and significance in Nebraska and the region. A gift to the annual fund helps both honor our past and celebrate the future.

Every gift, of any size, counts - we are tremendously grateful for your support. Thank you again for being a part of Joslyn Art Museum.
