Methodist Hospital
Concealed, Revealed: Portraits from the MONA Collection
On View through March 29, 2023

Portraiture has the power to immortalize a person, capturing their likeness at a specific time and place. The pose, expression, clothing, and setting are all elements that can reveal details about the sitter, and depending on the artwork, sometimes about the artist as well. Other times, there is meaning in the information that is withheld, such as the sitter’s name or identity.

Each of the eleven portraits in this exhibition provides a glimpse into the life and personality of the sitter. When the subject of the portrait is the artist themselves, in the case of self-portraits, or someone with which the artist has a relationship with, like a family member or friend, a sense of knowing and familiarity with the artist may arise, allowing for a richer reading and appreciation of the artwork.

Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center
Tactile Selections by the Museum of Nebraska Art
On View through March 29, 2023

Some art seems so inviting to touch, almost daring viewers to experience it with their fingertips as well as with their eyes. Textures invite the viewer to participate, or imagine participating, with the artwork beyond simply seeing. An artist may create texture through their choice of, or manipulation of, materials; or the illusion of it may be simulated by design. This exhibition showcases mixed media artworks and collages by seven Nebraska artists interested in exploring texture as a key element of these finished works.

Methodist Women’s Hospital
