KEARNEY — The Museum of Nebraska Art will host “Junior Curator Show: Underscoring: Line,” from May 10 through Aug. 11.
A select group of high school students has worked with the museum staff to conceptualize, select and install an exhibition of artworks drawn from MONA’s collection. The experiential learning expands their knowledge of art, museums and careers. The curation process begins with an exploration of the role of the visual elements in an artwork. Each element functions uniquely, line being perhaps the most ubiquitous.
A reception is set for 4 p.m. Friday.
The Junior Curator Show is sponsored by the MONA Guild.
The Museum of Nebraska Art, 2401 Central Ave., is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday; it is closed Mondays and major holidays. There is no admission charge.
The Museum of Nebraska Art celebrates the history of Nebraska’s visual art for diverse audiences. MONA collects, preserves, researches, exhibits and interprets the work of artists who were born, lived, trained or worked in Nebraska or who created artworks that reflect the culture of Nebraska.
