10:30–11:30 am

Art Encounters offers 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.

Highlights of the Contemporary Collection

Joslyn Art Museum recently unveiled five new contemporary acquisitions by American artists Rashid Johnson, Therman Statom, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, and Kehinde Wiley. All five—two large paintings, a print triptych, and two mixed-media sculptures—are the first works by these selected artists to enter Joslyn’s permanent collection.  Each of these works is an incredible addition to the Museum on its own. Together, they signal a fresh approach to collecting at Joslyn.”  Join us for a look at these impressive new objects!
