The Great Plains Art Museum will host Omaha-based artist Linda Rivera García as the 2023 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. 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.

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 4 to 15 during the museum’s public hours (Tue-Sat, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.). To schedule a group tour, email

A solo exhibition of Rivera García’s artwork will be on view at the museum from March 24 to September 22, 2023.
