Collecting Nebraska

Collecting Nebraska

August 4 – December 16, 2017

Features artworks from the permanent collection that depict Nebraska or were created by Nebraska artists. The exhibition is an official event of 150th Anniversary celebration of Nebraska statehood.

Over the last two centuries, artists have been inspired by the Nebraska experience, and in turn, have created a visual history of the state dating as far back as 1859 and as recent as 2016. The changing landscape of Nebraska from wide-open prairie to bustling cities can be witnessed in paintings, photographs, prints, textiles, and sculptures from the museum's permanent collection.

Collecting Nebraska includes paintings by Keith Jacobshagen, Dale Nichols, and Albert Bierstadt; photographs by Michael Forsberg, Michael Farrell, and George Tuck; and 3D work by Molly Murphy Adams and Herb Mignery. It is an official Nebraska 150th event.
