The completion of the transcontinental #railroad at Promontory Summit on May 10, 1869, was celebrated as a national event. Engaged by @uprr and Central Pacific to document the construction of the transcontinental railroad, Andrew J. Russell and Alfred A. Hart made #photographs and #stereographs that captured the grand ambitions of the railroads, the underlying principles of Manifest Destiny, and the visual splendor of the West. Tonight at 6:30 pm, Toby Jurovics, Joslyn’s Chief Curator and Holland Curator of American Western Art, will discuss several key photographs in the exhibition and interpret the overall significance of “The Race to Promontory” exhibition that is #nowonview in Gallery 15.  #joslynartmuseum #racetopromontory #trains

This evening, @americanmidwestballet will perform “Momentum, ” the company’s award-winning mixed-repertory program that features an eclectic mix of ballets that showcase the exciting range of dance as an expressive art form. The program will feature one dance inspired by a work of art from Joslyn’s permanent collection: May Stevens’ “Connemara (Rock Pool),” 1999-2001, #nowonview in Gallery 16. Stevens is a feminist artist and writer, and in thispainting, her words scroll across the canvas inmetallic ink (swipe for zoom). Join us tonight to see firsthand how this work has inspired their dance. #joslynartmuseum #ballet

Today, we announced our expansion project and the selection of international firm Snøhetta as the#architect. The 30-year-old firm, under founding partner Craig Dykers (@craigdykers), began its career with the revival of the ancient library of Alexandria, Egypt. This was later followed by the notable commissions of the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo (1), the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion in New York City (2), and more recently, the highly-acclaimed expansion to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (3). Jack Becker, Joslyn’s executive director & CEO noted that, “Snøhetta is an outstanding firm, and a perfect fit for this project, not only for their visionary design, but also for their commitment to honoring the legacy of the Museum and celebrating what Joslyn means to us, to our city, and to #Nebraska.”
