NEW: “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.

“Agrarian Spirit in the Homestead Era: Artwork from the Moseman Collection of Agrarian Art”
July 2–October 23, 2021
“Agrarian Spirit in the Homestead Era” features sixty paintings, sculptures, and prints that reveal dramatic change in land use on the Great Plains, from European American settlement and homesteading in the 1860s to an exodus from the land in the 1930s.

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