Robert Henri Museum and Art Gallery
Welcome to the Robert Henri Museum and Art Gallery located in Cozad, Nebraska. Robert Henri (Robert Henry Cozad) was one of America's greatest artists and one of its most important art instructors. In our environmentally controlled gallery, built in 2014, you will find the largest collection of Henri’s work on display than anywhere else in the world. In late 2019 we opened a major new exhibit entitled Through My Own Language: Robert Henri and His Portraits, Paintings and Sketches. There are eleven of his paintings, thirty-four of his sketches and three prints of his work exhibited along with personal items including letters and props. There are also examples of the work of some of his students.
Next to the gallery is the Robert Henri Museum which is located in the boyhood home of Henri and includes a number of family pieces on display. It was restored to its 1878-79 appearance in the 1980s. It is also where many of the museum's programs take place including our receptions for our Artists in Residence, Artists of the Month, the annual Robert Henri Arts Festival, and our annual Holiday at the Henri program along with privately sponsored eventsThe museum contains exhibits, period furnished rooms, a gallery for temporary art shows and a gift shop.
Our web page will provide you with a great deal of information about our programs, activities, collection, and archives. You can keep up to date about our museum's regular activities by going to our Facebook page or signing up for our digital newsletter. You can find about both by going to our Join and Support pages. We look forward to visiting with you at our museum and sharing our wonderful collection with you.
