Joslyn Composition

A few iPhone photos of Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha. The museum boasts a great permanent collection, and the Art Deco architecture is worth a visit alone. As wikipedia notes, the building, opened in 1931, is constructed of “Georgia Pink marble, with 38 different marbles from all over the world in the interior.” Some of that marble is seen in these shots, including the gorgeous fountain court.

The above photo of the snow-covered Grotto in Omaha’s Elmwood Park is one of several photos of mine found in the 2017 Omaha “River City” Calendar. The calendar is one of five events calendars for Midwestern cities (Chicago, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Omaha) published by American City Calendars. Several of my Omaha photos were published in a previous (2012) ACC calendar and it is nice to again have a few shots selected. (Last time, my mom wiped out the stock of calendars at Barnes & Noble (well, they only had three left), but this time she left a decent stock on the shelves).

The use of my shots also helped justify my decision to update my old Olympus Pen E-P3 m4/3 camera with a new Pen F (and the sale paid for a big chunk on the Pen F, as I noted in a previous post).

Here are a couple of my other photos in the 2017 Omaha ACC calendar:

Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha. A beautiful piece of art deco architecture and a surprisingly good permanent art collection (for a city of Omaha’s size). It routinely gets great exhibits to boot. A few other photos I’ve shot of the art museum may be seen here.

A few photos from a visit to Joslyn Art Museum and Lauritzen Botanical Gardens during a summer trip to my hometown to see family and the College World Series. Omaha’s Joslyn Art Museum is a beautiful piece of art deco architecture with a surprisingly good permanent art collection (for a city of Omaha’s size). It routinely gets great exhibits to boot. Lauritzen Gardens is Omaha’s Botanical Garden south of downtown near the (Missouri) River.
