The Great Plains Art Museum is open late for First Friday. Join us for the opening of “A Vital Presence: Native Art at the Great Plains Art Museum.” Admission is always free.

“A Vital Presence” presents selections from the Great Plains Art Museum’s collection of Native art, a significant—and growing—part of its permanent holdings. Featuring artists from diverse Great Plains and Southwest Indigenous tribes, this exhibition highlights the perspectives of these artists while emphasizing the ongoing presence and vitality of Indigenous peoples in our region.

Also on view:
“The Christlieb Collection: 40 Years Later”
October 1, 2021–February 19, 2022
In the fall of 1981, the Christlieb Collection of Western Art opened to the public on the second floor of UNL’s Love Library. 40 years later, this collection is still a favorite of many who visit it in its current home at the Great Plains Art Museum. This exhibition highlights key pieces from the collection and explores the legacy and interpretation of these artworks and the American West.

This event is free and open to all and will comply with all UNL and Lincoln-Lancaster County COVID-19 guidelines.

Because of construction, the north Que Place Parking Garage stairwell sidewalk is closed at Q street.
