Based in Omaha
6 pm

Free admission. This program is held at the Ashton Building, located at 1229 Millwork Avenue.

Stop by for the next program in a series designed to connect audiences with what it means to be a working artist in Omaha. Based in Omaha features artists in dialogue with Karin Campbell, Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art, and guest panelists from the Museum staff or other organizations. Conversations delve into a broad range of current topics, including racial justice movements, the climate crisis, Indigenous identities, trauma and healing, and more. We look forward to seeing you at the Ashton Building at Millwork Commons, a collaborative community inspiring and supporting the work of innovators and creators by providing engaging spaces to work, live, connect, explore, and unwind.

Thursday, April 20, 6 pm
On April 20, featured guest Angie Seykora will be joined by panelist Annika K. Johnson, Ph,D., Joslyn's Associate Curator of American Art.

Angie Seykora, M.F.A., creates installation, sculpture, and drawing that repurposes discarded industrial, traditional craft-based, and found materials. She is interested in reorienting the way we consider value and possibility in a mass-manufactured, synthetic world. Through process-driven, almost mechanical methods of assembly, she emphasizes accumulation and tactile materiality to produce work that references the history of post-minimalism, bodily systems, and “thinking through making.”

Based in Omaha  is a Joslyn Around Town program.
