Join the artist for the opening reception during Lincoln’s First Friday Artwalk on April 7, 5-7 p.m., with food and music.

Omaha-based artist Linda Rivera García is 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, she 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. A solo exhibition of Rivera García’s artwork will be on view at the museum from March 24 to September 22, 2023.

During her residency, Rivera García will create an artwork that will become part of the museum’s permanent collection. Visitors are encouraged to see the artist in action in the lower-level Elizabeth Rubendall Artist-in-Residence Studio & Education Lab from April-15 during the museum’s public hours.
