Art It’s ELEMENTARY!

Current – April 28, 2013

Color, line, shape, form, space, value, and texture. Art: It’ s ELEMENTARY! walks viewers through the elements of art using works from the Museum of Nebraska Art collection to show how these basic visual tools are used to build and view a work of art.

 

MONA’s 19th Century Artworks

Current – March 31, 2013

The foundational artworks of MONA’s permanent collection are the paintings, drawings, prints, and artifacts created in the 19th century that tell the story of westward expansion and the quickly changing territorial and cultural tides. Works included in this era were created by Artist-Explorers – the individuals who traveled and documented the new frontier, and the Plains Indians – the original inhabitants of the land. 

 

Spotlight on: Grant Reynard

Current – February, 2013

The illustrations of Grant Reynard capture the warmth of the season with a traditional and sentimental approach. These works welcome viewers into a nostalgic and peaceful world that is reminiscent of another time.

 

Recent Acquisitions

Current – February, 2013

In the last four years, the Museum of Nebraska Art has added nearly 300 artworks to its permanent collection. The paintings, sculpture, photography, prints, and other media, created over a span of 150 years, range from representational to abstract. Every piece reflects MONA’s mission to collect artworks created by a Nebraskan or in Nebraska, or whose subject reveals the unique culture of the region. Numerous donors have made these acquisitions possible.
