As Joslyn Art Museum is presently closed in response to community efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19, the museum’s staff has planned a series of virtual engagement opportunities for all ages. Experiences range from passive to participatory and are meant to be both educational and entertaining.
Joslyn executive director and CEO Jack Becker noted, “While in-person museum access is not possible, Joslyn remains committed to connecting everyone with the arts. Many of you have reached out saying that you miss us, and we miss you. We hope that these virtual art moments provide a chance for you to connect to the museum and the arts from afar.”
In addition to regular continuing social media activity, opportunities are highlighted via the museum’s website (www.joslyn.org) and @joslynartmuseum on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Check out:
Virtual Tour: Fact and Fiction in Contemporary Photography
Joslyn’s exhibition Fact and Fiction in Contemporary Photography was one month into its three-month run at closure, but selections from the show can still be enjoyed. The mobile tour for the exhibition, presented in English and Spanish, now features images of the art referenced at each audio stop so it can be all be experienced from home.
