Postmaster Interactive Gallery
January 16, 2010 – January 10, 2011
The purpose of the Postmaster Interactive Gallery is to engage and educate visitors about artwork at the Museum of Nebraska Art. A quarterly rotating art selection complements the resources and activities. The 2010 selections showcase artists H.H. Bagg and Olive Bagg Dye, Terrence Duren, Birger Sandzen, and Leonard Thiessen.
June 5 – November 14, 2010
Nebraska’s Heritage celebrates our relationship with the land. From beautiful prairie landscapes, to dust bowl era “dirt farms” and images of modern agri-business, Nebraska’s agricultural heritage is seen through the eyes of the most accomplished visiting and home-grown artists.
Music of the Meadowlark
July 3 – September 14, 2010
In 2001, the first Meadowlark Music Festival was held in Lincoln, Nebraska. Each year, a Nebraska artist is commissioned to create an artwork with the Festival as inspiration. This exhibition honors the 10-year anniversary of the Festival and brings together the commissioned works from these artists.
Nebraska Now: Bradley Peters, Photographs
July 10 – October 3, 2010
Calling back to the street photographers, the work of Bradley Peters gracefully and spontaneously captures “moments in time” that lead to a world of discovery and questions. Peters completed his undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln followed by his Master of Fine Arts in Photography from Yale University. He is a Nebraska native who currently resides in Lincoln.
August 10 – November 21, 2010
Throughout the history of art, the human form has served as a source of inspiration, intrigue, and sometimes scandal. This exhibition, comprised of works from the MONA collection as well as works on loan, focuses on various ways that artists have chosen to depict the human figure, through both realism and abstraction.
The Animal Kingdom
August 24, 2010 – August 7, 2011
Selected artwork from MONA’s permanent collection features animals and their kingdoms from all parts of the world. Special educational activities throughout the year include hands-on workshops, February’s Family Fun Day, and spring’s MONA Crane Workshops coupled with a residency by nationally known storyteller, Brian Fox Ellis.
McKenney and Hall’s History of the Indian Tribes of North America
August 31 – December 5, 2010
A three volume series published in the mid 19th century, these lithographs feature portraits of prominent Native American delegates who were invited to Washington to discuss and sign treaties. With loans from Joslyn Art Museum, this exhibition brings a grouping of these prints to the Museum of Nebraska Art.
The Saturday Evening Post: Holiday Images
September 28, 2010 – January 10, 2011
Several of Nebraska’s 20th century artists were noted contributors to The Saturday Evening Post, and the Museum of Nebraska Art counts many Post covers among its holdings. Selected from this body of work, Holiday Images evokes reminiscences about an era that celebrated the season much as today, when joy and goodwill herald the season.
Nebraska Now: Renee Ledesma Hoover, Installation
October 9, 2010 – January 2, 2011
The art of Renee Ledesma Hoover utilizes Mexican folk art imagery and processes to “explore relationships between the earthly and the divine.” Comprising both two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks that utilize clay, paper-mâché, ink, and wood, the exhibition assembles both recent and previous works.
African-American Artists: The Nebraska Experience
December 4, 2010 – April 3, 2011
This first comprehensive survey exhibition documents the artwork of African American artists with ties to Nebraska. Providing an opportunity for broader awareness of the historical experience of African Americans in Nebraska, the exhibition also aims to create a deeper understanding of the power of art for personal expression and interpersonal connection between people of diverse backgrounds.
Of Pen, Paper, Pencil
December 21, 2010 – February 27, 2011
From a simple sketch to a laboriously created hyper-realist work, drawing is often the most basic form of expression for an artist. Featuring works from the Museum of Nebraska Art’s collection and those by invited artists, drawings capture either a sense of immediacy or a well thought-out composition.
