What We Do

Joslyn Art Museum collects, preserves, and interprets the visual arts of the highest quality, fostering appreciation and enjoyment of art for the benefit of a diverse audience.

The Museum displays three special major exhibitions annually, as well as smaller scale contemporary art exhibitions are presented in the CAP Gallery. In addition, the Mind's Eye Gallery hosts three exhibitions annually of illustrations from children's literature with the focus on youth and families.

The Museum is dedicated to providing learning opportunities for adults, youth and families, school and university students and faculty, and under-served groups. Education programs are designed for all ages to learn from and respond to art, and to participate in many ways, including through their own creative expression. Joslyn’s outreach efforts to the community strive to make the Museum relevant and accessible to all.
