offers docent-guided tours of Joslyn's collections and special exhibitions on the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 10:30 am. Designed to appeal to all art lovers, from the well-seasoned to the amateur, these monthly programs are a great way to learn about art with others.

American Moderns 1910-1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell

Challenging long-standing traditions and breaking free of established academies and practices, many American artists from 1910 to 1960 found the avant-garde art of Europe — especially Cubism — to be a catalyst for their own innovations. Others found inspiration in the distinctive character of American life.

Drawn from the Brooklyn Museum’s world-renowned collection, American Moderns explores this exciting and energetic period through 50 paintings and sculptures by artists including George Ault, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Loren Maciver, Elie Nadelman, Max Weber, and Isabel Lydia Whitney. No two artists illuminate the rich complexity of American art during this era, however, more than Georgia O’Keeffe and Norman Rockwell.

Presented in partnership with Nebraska Medicine's Health & Wellness Club, Art Encounters is free for most programs. General public guests receive a discounted price on ticketed exhibition tours. Reservations are not required.  For program details please contact Joslyn's Director of Adult Programs at (402) 661-3862 or by email.
