Joslyn Art Museum
Omaha, Nebraska

To support the reinstallation of Joslyn Art Museum’s American wing. Rooted in the concept of homeland, the newly configured displays traverse colonial borders and frame America as an international crossroads where many nations and traditions merge and collide. For the first time in the museum’s history, the American Wing centers Native American voices in the story of American art history. The reinstallation of the American Wing is occasioning new research and an innovative interpretation of the museum’s wide-ranging collection of paintings, sculptures, bead and quill embroidery, textiles, prints, and photographs. The reinstallation is accompanied by “The Natural Face of North America,” a digital platform developed in collaboration with Creighton University and the Nebraska Indian Community College and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
