From Paintbrushes to Camera Lenses: Creative Women of the Great Plains, Part II
July 25–December 16, 2023
In fall 2018, the museum mounted From Paintbrushes to Camera Lenses: Creative Women of the Great Plains, an exhibition that highlighted exceptional work created by female artists from the permanent collection. To complement other female-focused exhibitions on view during fall 2023, the museum is organizing part two of this exhibition to showcase recent acquisitions and other works from the collection by women not shown in the first installation.

Supporting Indigenous Sisters: An International Print Exchange
July 25–December 16, 2023
This print portfolio exchange involves sixteen artists from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous backgrounds. The portfolio was created to help begin conversations on many levels about missing and murdered Indigenous women and each artist was asked to reach into their own experiences. The images advocate for change and for voicing this dark present history.

Chicanisma: Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence Linda Rivera García
March 24–September 22, 2023
The Great Plains Art Museum’s 2023 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence is Linda Rivera García, a Mexican-American Chicana artist, teacher, and storyteller who has been sharing her culture throughout Nebraska for decades. A graduate of Omaha’s College of Saint Mary and a retired children’s librarian, Rivera García is a multifaceted artist who works in painting, sculpture, printmaking, and with traditional Mexican art forms such as papel picado (cut paper) and repujado (metal embossing), among many others. This exhibition will feature work that represents the artist’s career to date.
