The Great Plains Art Museum is open late for Lincoln’s First Friday Art Walk on March 4, 5-7 p.m., and admission is always free. Join us for the opening of a new exhibition: 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. Also on view: A Vital Presence: Native Art at the Great Plains Art Museum Nov. 5, 2021–March 19, 2022 A Vital Presence presents selections from the Great Plains Art Museum’s collection of Native art, a significant—and growing—part of its permanent holdings. Featuring artists from diverse Great Plains and Southwest Indigenous tribes, this exhibition highlights the perspectives of these artists while emphasizing the ongoing presence and vitality of Indigenous peoples in our region.
