A New Joslyn Art Museum- Design Discussion with Michelle Delk, Aaron Dorf, and Craig Dykers

August 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

6:30 pm talk, 5:30 pm cash bar social hour. Free admission. Omaha Conservatory of Music is located at 7023 Cass Street.

On September 10, The Joslyn will open as a restored, expanded, and transformed institution, inside and out. Designed in collaboration with Snøhetta and Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture, the new 42,000-square-foot Rhonda & Howard Hawks Pavilion is the centerpiece of a project that creates a new visitor experience of the Museum and its grounds. Join us for a lively conversation among Snøhetta design team members, moderated by The Joslyn’s executive director and CEO Jack Becker, that will illuminate a years-long design process and highlight some significant feats and finer details of the buildings and landscape to take in when visiting.

Michelle Delk is a Partner with Snøhetta based in New York City. She leads the Landscape Architecture practice in the Americas as a passionate advocate and designer of the public realm. Her work is evocative of a foundational premise shared with Snøhetta: to create places that enhance the positive relationships between people and their environments.

Aaron Dorf is a Director and Senior Architect at Snøhetta, leading projects including the National September 11 Museum Pavilion; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art expansion; Harvard HouseZero; and Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library. He helps lead Snøhetta’s North American sustainability practice – promoting ultra-low energy use, zero emissions, and healthy materials.

Craig Dykers is a founder of the international design practice Snøhetta, establishing offices in Oslo, Norway; New York City; and several other studios globally since its inception in 1989. He has led many of Snøhetta’s prominent projects internationally, including the Alexandria Library in Egypt, the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo, and Joslyn Art Museum’s expansion.

Thanks to partnering organizations AIA Nebraska and daOMA.
