“Masterpieces of the Heartland” – Kearney @ Museum of Nebraska Art
Jun 20 all-day

The Museum of Nebraska Art will at this year’s Aksarben Ball Omaha, Nebraska October 19, 2019.
The theme for this year’s Askarben Ball is “Masterpieces of the Heartland” chosen by the Aksarben Women’s Ball Committee Chairman, Beth Wilson. Along with the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, the Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA) in Kearney will be honored. In a statement from Wilson, “her first thoughts were that the Museum of Nebraska Art be represented as it is a natural fit with the theme of the Ball this year. We were discussing highlighting the “Masterpieces” of Nebraska, ie the people, the landscape, the places (institutions) that all come together to make Nebraska the Masterpiece that it is. What I loved about the MONA is all of the Nebraska art/artists one can see on a visit, not to mention the fact that the building itself is on the National Register of historic buildings. These factors combined with the fact that it is located in the middle of the state, all made it something that we wanted to highlight the night of the Ball.” The Women’s Ball Committee Production Chair, Sam Hohman also stated, “I’m a member of MONA and love how they focus on Nebraska artists and Nebraska as subject matter. It definitely was a natural tie in to the theme.”

MUSEUM TO CELEBRATE ROBERT HENRI’S 154TH BIRTHDAY ON JUNE 22, 2019.

The Robert Henri Museum and Art Gallery is pleased to announce that it will be celebrating the life of one of America’s most important artists and art instructors with the Robert Henri Arts Festival on June 22, 2019 from 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m. The museum is located on 218 East 8th Street, in Cozad, Nebraska.

Robert Henri was born on June 24, 1865 in Cincinnati, Ohio to John and Theresa Cozad. An older brother, John A. Cozad, was born in 1862. Four years after Robert’s birth his father founded Cozaddale, Ohio, on the outskirts of Cincinnati. Robert was raised in both Cincinnati and Cozaddale and attended the Chickering Classical and Scientific Institute. The school, described as a Select School for Boys, was opened in 1855 and many of its graduates went on to became prominent businessmen and professionals. It was one of the largest schools of its kind in the country. Henri attended school during the year from 1875-1879 and then came out to Nebraska when school was let out. After 1881, when the family moved to Denver, Henri attended school there.
