The Great Plains Art Museum is open late for Lincoln’s First Friday Art Walk on April 1, 5-7 p.m., and admission is always free. Join us for the opening of a new exhibition:

The Great Plains Art Museum has revived its biennial juried exhibition, “Contemporary Indigeneity.” The fourth iteration of this group show will feature work by 28 artists from across the Great Plains who address the contemporary Native American experience in the region.

Come early (4 p.m.) to hear the “Contemporary Indigeneity” jurors and Ashley Wilkinson, Director of the Great Plains Art Museum, talk about the exhibition, Indigenous art, and the jury process.

Also on view:
Star Body, Star Breath
March 4–August 6, 2022
Star Body, Star Breath features new and recent work by Sarah Rowe, the museum’s 2022 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. Rowe is an Omaha-based multimedia artist of Lakota and Ponca descent whose work opens cross-cultural dialogues by utilizing methods of painting, casting, fiber arts, performance, and Native American ceremony in unconventional ways. Her work is participatory, a call to action, and re-imagines traditional Native American symbology to fit the narrative of today’s global landscape.
