Joslyn Art Museum Charity Profile
As Nebraska’s largest and most distinguished art museum, Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha has served as the premier center for visual art since opening in 1931. Joslyn's collection features work from antiquity to the present, with an emphasis on 19th- and 20th-century European and American art. Highlights of the permanent collection include works by Lorenzo di Credi, El Greco, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Hart Benton. American masters such as Grant Wood, Jackson Pollock, Dale Chihuly, and George Segal are also represented.
Joslyn is renowned for its collection of art of the American West, and known worldwide for its collection of Swiss artist Karl Bodmer’s watercolors and prints documenting his 1832–1834 journey to the Missouri River frontier with German Prince Maximilian of Wied.
